Floating steps rise past leafy branches in this skylit stairwell designed by Anonym Studio.
Our Focus series shines the spotlight on the details: the extraordinary materials, spaces, and ideas that take great projects to the next level.
In this minimalist Bangkok home by Anonym Studio, the staircase takes center stage. "The owners are young Thai celebrities working in the entertainment business," says architect Phongphat Ueasangkhomset. "They requested that different areas in the home be visible in relation to one another, and the staircase helps connects the spaces."
Located just beyond the front door, the staircase is made of white-painted reinforced concrete, with risers and treads clad in engineered oak. The steps appear to float in midair, save for the elongated base, which serves as a seating area. "Sometimes the owners take a nap on this elevated step," says Ueasangkhomset.
