The most recent location of the now world famous Nandos Restaurant Chain has opened on Parliament Street in Harrogate. As part of the development, Demax Stairs were approached by STAC Architects to provide a staircase which was a little ‘different’. Whilst the available space was restricted with walls on three sides, the staircase still needed to be eye catching and become a statement piece for both customers and staff alike. 3D Renders were produced of various designs to give an idea how to best utilise the space.

How can a unique access to a place be used as a way in which to design new and unexpected forms of art and architecture? This is the question I asked myself before I made a new series of functional art structures.
They were all designed in an attempt to offer very unique sculptural places, themed around the idea of an unusual access to an enclosed, or partially enclosed portion of the pavilion.

The stairs arranged for seeing site of expo is placed like mountain path.These stairs definitely aren’t trying to hide – they’re the most interesting element in the tower. Reminiscent of a climbing mountain, the stairs of circulation are balanced by the long cable structure.Circulation elements can act as urban focal points outside of where people can come walk and seeing. The symbolic observation tower is conceived as a round arch of steel structure with an open-air stairs at its body.The open-air stairs contains flexible walking path and terrace which are accessed via bazaar entrance.Walking downwards from the top through a continuous stair promenade, the visitors of the observation tower experience all of the building’s in a constant motion, while enjoying dynamic 360 degree views of the city of Antalya and the Expo landscape.

A quite remarkable traditional staircase based on the Demax steel staircase system. Installing staircases into existing properties are never easy, especially when they are this large.

The project responds to the customer requests who wanted a modern stair but at the same time asked for a safe passage between the floors of the house, so the system of ceiling mounting became the railing of the stairs thus fulfilling this dual task.

Now you can enjoy a beautiful, functional staircase where conventional staircases are not practical. EeStairs’ space saving stairs allow you to do more with less. Limited space? There are many situations where a property can be enhanced by creating a useable space from a redundant upper level; however a consistent factor is limited space. The introduction of a staircase to provide access to a proposed upper level will invariably compromise the floor space below where originally no stair was intended.

Inspired by the spine of a whale, the Vertebrae Staircase is not simply mimicry of organic form but an exploration in shaping structure. Much of the design work went into refining the single component, or vertebra, that mate with each other creating a unified spine running from floor plate to floor plate. These interlocking vertebrae create a rigid and self-supporting structure.
