Dealing with architectural problems relating to stairs can sometimes be a pain in the butt however in this case the stairs have become a home’s stunning centrepiece.
The inspiration for this instruction brief was an installation by Doh Ho Suh hanging in the Janel Wafson de Botton Gallery at the Tate Modern entitled Staircase III.
Michaelis Boyd Associates together with Diapo and Webb Yates Engineers created this unique hanging red staircase for a home in London and which appears to defy laws of physics.
Their brief was to create a staircase for a split level property in London completely hanging off the existing building structure. Constructed from perforated Steel Sheet which provides a sense of transparency as light conditions generate different experiences at different times of day.
