Cooper Barrel, New York [US]
EeStairs + Robert Kahn Architect
A stylish apartment in New York’s Greenwich Village required a statement staircase that would wrap around a supporting column in the building’s interior.
The resulting stair features a solid steel plate balustrade finished in black matte, in addition to a riser that is exposed on its underside.
EeStairs faced the challenge of having to join the steel plate balustrade to the staircase’s treads without using any exposed welds, to create a seamless metal surface. The staircase, which was at the time in two pieces, then entered the apartment through one of its windows with the careful use of a crane.
