Winnington Stair
London

In the centre of a grand new house on Winnington Road, a slender stone staircase spirals up through the floors from basement to roof. The open well of the staircase allows light from the large rooflight at the top to flow down and into the lower floors of the house.

The stair follows the construction of traditional Georgian cantilever stone staircases, where each tread is built into the wall and sits on the back of the tread below. In this manner each tread works to support part of itself and a portion of the weight from the treads above, and the result is a very narrow waist between treads.

Completed 2016.
