Built in Staircase in Minimalist House in Portugal
If you live in a house with at least the ground floor and first floor you will certainly need the stairs to get to the first floor. And the whole aspect of your house interior is affected a great deal by the way in which these stairs look. They look different if they are made of cement, wood, bricks and so on. You can use this to improve your home appearance with little money if you have some imagination. Today I will present the idea of two young and creative architects (Ana Vieira and Ricardo Freitas): the built in staircase that looks like it is floating.
The staircase is zig-zaging from the ground floor to the first floor and is made of hard polished wood that is afterwards lacquered , looking very nice against the totally white interior of the PAC house in Portugal the architects from A+R Arquitectos were decorating. The end of the boards is built in the wall and the entire stair is suspended in the air, giving the floating effect. Because nobody wants some unfortunate accidents in the house, there is a nice modern white metal bar at the edge of the stairs that can be used to hold on to while climbing up the stairs. It looks like a giant Z and goes uninterrupted from the ground floor up, enhancing the modern look of the staircase.
