winding wooden staircase

Located in a London apartment, this gorgeous staircase designed by Atmos gives the impression of a living, growing tree in the midst of a living space. Beginning on the floor, the tree-like structure grows up and out, spreading its limbs in multiple directions to carry the residents to a higher level.

CNC-cut layers of wood wrap around a pole at the bottom of the staircase, creating the first few steps which wrap around to provide a small shelving area.

As the staircase continues to rise, the front edges of each stair extend to join with the railing. This organic structure resembles a tree’s branches extending from the trunk, with the branches or perhaps the leaves forming the stairs.

The staircase’s supports are minimalist and blend in perfectly with the surroundings, making the stairs appear almost to float in place. The winding stairs are reminiscent of a magical woodland scene in which a set of enchanting stairs leads to something fantastically unexpected.
