But there's a truth in this little piece that won't quite let go of me. I hope you enjoy it.

The South Australian Health & Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI) is a unique building in Adelaide’s new health research district in the city. Not only is the building beautiful from the outside, with its unique tiled windows adorned with individual shades, but its interior is even more impressive.

In the rear atrium there is this beautiful helical staircase which leads researchers and scientists up and down the levels of open office spaces.
