The Beauty of the Staircase

One of the most fascinating aspects of architecture for me is finding staircases.  A good staircase is always a joy to find and photograph.  This is my latest edit from this ongoing project, taking the staircase project to 172 now uploaded into the project gallery. 

I love this circa early 1970s staircase, there are so many layers of materials going on.  The terrazzo stairs themselves, and the aluminium bars that really are a dramatic feature.   The original door and light fittings also provide originality and visual joy.  

If you would like to hear more about my love of staircases and why I enjoy photographing them you can check out an interview I did for the ABC here:
