Sculptural Stairs at the School of Arts in Saint Herblain, France


Tétrarc Architects have designed the School of Arts in Saint Herblain, an intriguing looking modern building in France accommodating (among others) a music and dance theater on the first floor and a space for exhibition on the second floor. However, it is the way the too are connected that draws attention. These sculptural stairs are the focal point of the entire building. With an irregular shape, the balanced swirl of color disrupts the homogeneous appearance of the interiors and remind visitors that this is indeed, a place of creativity. Its design is fun to observe from any standpoint and probably makes climbing up the stairs easier too. Do you find these sculptural stairs as intriguing as we do? And can you think of any reasons why a similar project could not be implemented in a modern residence?  [Photography: Stéphane Chalmeau]

    Whoa…Everything’s visual and round in their stair concepts! I hope I can apply it also with my new interior project in the office. Perhaps I can share this on my boss when he gets back from his trip. Hope he will agree with this visual idea.
