Stairs with integrated storage by Splyce Design/Build
Here's to the man who invented stairsAnd taught our feet to soar!He was the first who ever burstInto a second floor.The world would be downstairs to-dayHad he not found the key;So let his name go down to fame,Whatever it may be. Oliver Herford (1863-1935) I must admit that I have become addicted to a p*rn site- Justin Anthony of Materialicious has founded Stair P*rn, an entire website that is all stairs all the time. We have covered many of them in our Stair of the Week column, but no doubt we will find a lot more here. Hotel Josef, Prague, by Eva Jiricna Architects
Architects tend to bury stairs in fireproof enclosures and stick them at the end of corridors as required fire exits; in many office buildings (like TreeHugger headquarters in New York) you cannot even get into them without setting off security alarms.
That is why a well designed, attractive and easily accessible stair is so important in good green design; it is healthy for the people in the building, uses no fossil fuels and encourages interaction.
