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.
