These Stairs Are Not From IkeaPosted: March 5, 2011
One theme that we’ve keep coming back to this semester is the importance of deeply integrating all elements of your design. Beginning with the pavilion project we looked at how projects in which the shelves and stairs were designed in mesh with the design of the structure were the most successful. These stairs are clearly a prime example of this idea. Designed by Atmos Studio the stairs seems to grow right out of the floor and walls. Wood stems out of the floor on the surface of the walls, peeling off to form stairs and railings. The risers are finished in a white that matches the walls. In addition to material similarities the curving elements in the railing and the treads of the stairs them selves relate to the other forms in the house such as the shape of the walls, the bathroom door, and even the paneling on some of the walls.
