A pleasant place to stay
A staircase with cube and perforated sheets
A staircase is not usually a lounge or a common room. That could now change. With a cube made from perforated sheets which has lighting on the inside. A staircase thus becomes an architectural highlight. So climbing the stairs may take a little longer!
Inspiration on the staircase
In Hirzel, the home town of the Heidi authoress Johanna Spyri, staircase railings have produced a creative illumination. Inspired by traditional farmhouses, the architects Rolf Gmür and Eugen Antón designed ten modern multi-family houses using contemporary forms and materials. The architectural highlight in the houses is the staircase: it does not turn like normal around a void but around a cube made of perforated sheet shining out gently from inside. Heidi's eyes would also certainly have lit up if she had seen this.
