Staircase Designs That Bring Out The Beauty In Every Home
What makes a particular staircase different from all the others? Is it its size, shape, the materials it’s made of, its placement, or is it something else entirely? In fact, any of these items could be the answer. While all staircases serve more or less the same role (to connect spaces on different levels), each of them is unique. Because the staircase is an integral part of the design and layout of a home, it often becomes a focal point of the home. Let’s look at some staircase ideas that have already been implemented and see how they manage to stand out.
Fernanda Marques Arquitetos Associados built this house on a steep lot in Sao Paulo, being guided throughout the process by the desire to connect the spaces with the environment and to invite nature. It was all a success and you can witness it best in the design of the double height room that incorporates the staircase. Here, floor-to-ceiling windows reveal the beautiful views and let in the light, while the wooden and metal staircases create a pleasant ambience.
Beautiful and elegant stairs seem to be the core of the design of this house. They create a dynamic feel and ensure continuity between all spaces. In terms of design, Gabellini Sheppard Associates chose a combination of American and Scandinavian elements to suit their customers’ needs and styles. The balance is quite nice. The Loft in Soho, New York is a truly harmonious family home that exudes simplicity and sophistication.
In this house from Leuven, Belgium, the staircase is rather inconspicuous. It tries to blend in rather than stand out. The focus is on the view and the cozy reading corner under the stairs. It’s one of the smartest configurations when it comes to stairs and under-stair storage or, in this case, around corners. This cool combination was the work of NU Architectuuratelier, the studio that remodeled this cozy home.
Can you believe it? This residence is called the Staircase. Located in Seattle, Washington, it was designed by David Coleman Architecture in 2011. The staircase plays an important role in the overall design and configuration of the home, partly due to its beautiful appearance. We like the combination of wood and metal with the stairs and we particularly like the banister.
For the redesign of the Villa Carlotta Hotel in Ragusa, Sicily, the Architrend Architecture studio was faced with the difficult task of reinventing a historic late 19th-century building and transforming it into a contemporary home. They didn’t want to detract from the building’s charm, so they kept some traces of the past, like the wooden ceiling beams and the stone walls. An elegant staircase with glass railings complements it perfectly.
This is the interior of a residence renovated in 2012 by Bourgeois Lechasseur Architectes. The aim was to make it brighter and give spaces to the interiors. A more open feel without completely losing the original rural charm. The home has received a fresh new look, with large windows flooding the living spaces with natural light and a staircase that filters it without spoiling the view.
It used to be an old, ramshackle building, but now it’s a gorgeous modern home with a cool bookshelf and staircase combo, polished concrete floors, and brick walls painted white. The transformation of this space in Rotterdam is the work of Shift Architecture Urbanism as part of a series of renovations in this specific area. Each has been customized to meet the needs of each client.
This is more than just a simple staircase. It’s also an eye-catching design feature, like a sculpture, but not quite as much. This is something architects Edouard Brunet and François Martens designed for a home they renovated in Brussels, Belgium. The steel staircase is suspended from the ceiling on the upper floor and goes almost all the way down to the floor below, only to stop there and have the last few steps built into a wooden storage room.
After a complete redesign by Maxwan Architects, an old barn from Geldermalsen, The Netherlands has been transformed into a cozy home with a contemporary new look. It has a beautiful open-plan kitchen and living area on the ground floor and a cozy upper floor, connected by a hybrid staircase and bookcase, which is partially suspended from the ceiling with metal rods.
The whitewashed brick wall is a cool backdrop to the sculpted wood and metal staircase, and this unusual combination of materials and styles also defines the rest of the home. This is a space designed by RÄS Studio in Barcelona, Spain in 2016.
