floating design

For this house in Rotterdam, the floating step has been chosen to preserve as much space and light as possible. The floating staircase starts with steps on an elevation with drawer, continues on the wall and finally turns upwards on the wall. The steps are extra thick and the steel fence is playfully incorporated into it. A nice constructive challenge was the large floating steps in the middle of the turn.

The wall part is also part of the construction. Form follows function; the construction makes the design more beautiful.
