In Melbourne, a trippy staircase encourages more people to take the stairs

When Australia’s largest health insurer Medibank decided to build themselves a new headquarters, they asked creative studio ‘HASSELL’ to design a healthy and active working environment – because you know, healthy is what they do. So the studio came up with a staircase design that’s vibrant, engaging, and most importantly in an office setting, trippy.

Located in Melbourne’s Docklands district, the Medibank Building features a combination of colour-coded ramps and stairs that wiggle and snake throughout the structure’s atrium, connecting all its floors together fluidly. It comes with 26 working spaces that present different settings for employees, from peaceful indoor offices to group work areas to even Wi-Fi enabled balconies complete with standing desks.

It also has a sports area at the ground level, an edible garden, a demonstration kitchen, two 25-metre high vertical gardens, and 2,300 indoor plants. With features like these, Medibank hopes to inspire employees and visitors to take on a more active lifestyle by taking the stairs, all the while enjoying the magnificent views along the way.
