FRIDAY FUNNY: Watch Your Step…

FRIDAY FUNNY: Watch Your Step... | Facility Executive - Creating Intelligent Buildings

Staircases are just staircases, right? Well, not always. Sometimes, a clever designer taps the talents of a diligent engineer, and the results can be pretty impressive. Take a look…

This one would be confusing at first. Start with the wrong foot and you are in trouble.

Here’s a practical idea…the two bottom steps both open up for additional storage.

Unnaturally natural….

Another great use of space (my personal favorite)…
Going up:

And going down:

Better on paper than in practice?

Another example where footing is essential.
Going up (left) and down (right):

Colorful, but nauseating. Does this one come with a sick bag?

Does this pass code?

Or this?

This looks more like a sliding board than a staircase.

Perhaps this is what it looks like inside the condo for the Keebler elves?

  1. awesome … I love it when people start becoming innovative with construction/ architecture. Most concepts used now are nearly pre-historic. The construction world needs to re-vamp as does the architechtural world!

  2. That first staggered stair system is being used by at least one manufactured home manufacturer in South Dakota for their log homes.
