15 geometric staircase versions
Mostly, staircases are simply intended as places to go from A to B in the vertical sense, but stairs can also offer the opportunity to showcase unusual design features, and with geometric details throughout the rage, architects and designers come into action and geometric Create stair designs with clever and unexpected details. In the following 15 examples we present ideas that are much more than just stairs.
Designed by David Lebenthal Architects, the Mendelkern house in the east of Tel Aviv has a balustrade of varying voids in the floor-to-ceiling balustrade, but also has a series of shelves attached to the balustrade for exhibition purposes. The geometry of the horizontal and vertical moments is then interrupted by the slash of the continuous steel profiles and ribs, which are boldly geometric and quietly minimalist at the same time.
The geometry of the stairwell is softened by the various shelf collections and in particular by the living greenery. Source .
There is nothing more geometric than a great cube design and this blue staircase by RA Projects is not only cubic but also blue to make a statement in the otherwise neutral fin-house.
Reinforcement of the geometry is the wall of open and closed shelves, which is integrated in the back of the balustrade. Source .
The Iron Lace staircase by Gestion Rene Desjardins for customers in Montreal, Canada, is a composition of slices of different sizes, repeating themselves in a random pattern, making this staircase not only geometric but also organic.
Francesco Librizzi Studio has created this amazing staircase made of oak boxes and blackened steel for Casa G in Cefalu, Sicily.
Wooden boxes are also a feature of the staircase in the Glebe House by Nobbs Radford Architects, only here they are mounted in the deep balustrade.
Even the bottom of the Glebe House stairwell is beautiful. Source .
This bespoke red staircase by Diapo seems to defy gravity and is based on an art installation by Do Ho Suh, except that instead of fabric, this staircase is made of perforated sheet steel.
The AR Floating glass staircase by Diapo was designed for a reception hall. Made with UV-bonded glass risers and treads, they are laterally mounted with stainless steel connectors that add their own layer of repetitive design elements.
The architects Edouard Brunet and Francois Martens have created this suspended steel staircase to integrate the underlying workpieces. Source .
While geometry could be the backbone of Marretti’s self-supporting staircase, I notice the aesthetics of spine tingling.
Woodpecker Harpman has placed a grid on both sides of this staircase – both on the wall and in the area below the stairs. Designed for a 425 sq.ft. Micro Home in NYC hiding the stairs a mystery.
The geometric grid under the stairs are doors and drawers for extra storage – pretty cool. Source .
Craft Design has designed this modular staircase as a series of storage compartments that “disappear” from the view into the actual wall of the stowage space behind it. It is a relief pattern of geometric boxes. Source .
Another stairwell that has a relief pattern is the design by SABO Project only this time, the stairs are hidden behind the storage units, which incidentally also include a workstation. Source .
Nico van der Meulen Architects designed House Boz with all sorts of interesting geometric details, one of which is this stunning staircase, which also happens to contain stripes of light in each of its steps. Source .
Here is another well-lit staircase. Designed by Design Associates, it features concrete edges and thick solid wood profiles for a boxy look inspired by Japanese design. Source .
There is something wrong with this design – oh I know, it’s the shadow box! A funny design from OYO.IS, the stairs are animated with a red burst at their sides and this red repeats itself in the pillars of the clear handrail – truly unique!
