floating feeling

For a private residence in Amsterdam South, we have designed a staircase and railing to stronger connect the different levels.

The hallway already has a central staircase, but there is deliberately chosen for an eye-catcher in the living room. From the living room you can look down into the kitchen. This space we have intentionally left open to create more connection.

The staircase provides a floating feeling as the outer stringer is concealed in the wall and there is only a small contact point with the inner stringer. The latter disappears behind the glass profile, which gives a view at the head end of the steel steps. The steps are deliberately kept slim to further accentuate the floating effect.

"An all-steel staircase provides a quiet atmosphere. So for this house it became a design with as few different materials as possible."
