Carpenter | Lowings' staircase chosen as one of Dezeen's favourites of 2016

Carpenter Lowings Architecture & Design's innovative stand-alone glass staircase in an apartment in Hong Kong has been chosen by Dezeen as one the top 10 staircases of 2016. The staircase – a sculptural installation with an overall height of 5.5 metres – forms a focal point, acting as a vertical, unifying element in the interior design of the apartment. The silhouetting of opaque elements is avoided by minimising the number of metal fittings used. As a result, the design achieves the maximum interaction of light and glass.
