Asymmetric Staircase Incorporates Sitting Areas

Japanese architectural firm Acaa built this home in Yakohama, Japan as a home gallery — but it is the exquisitely designed staircase that caught our attention.

The placement of the stairs and small landings, the shapes, the relationships. This is far more than just a staircase. The whole flow is so organic. We can imagine a party, where there are guests sitting on each of the mini-landings. And we love how they’ve used the globe lights – works so well. And we’ve always loved white risers with wood tops. There’s a clear pathway up the stairs, meandering, wandering from side to side. Stopping to sit along the way. Such a simple architectural element, transformed into flow and motion. It doesn’t get any better than that!
