Staircases are transverse constructions that link two horizontal planes. Often forgotten or neglected in the past, we now recognise their importance to a successful interior. The stairway is not simply a passage linking upper and lower levels. It is an indivisible part of architecture and design, which holds the potential to become a piece of exquisite artwork. If you are an interior designer or an architect, this collection will make an invaluable practical and professional reference. Concentrated on indoor staircase design, this book covers numerous examples taken from public and residential spaces. Entries are organised into 6 categories: wooden staircases, steel and wood staircases, steel and glass staircases, reinforced concrete staircases, mixed materials staircases and special material staircases. Internal Staircases Design analyses each work according to their materials, composition and creativity, combining photographs, plan drawings, cross-sections, and sophisticated and insightful descriptions.
