Canadian multidisciplinary practice Saucier + Perrotte Architectes has created a snake-like, orange staircase for the Anne-Marie Edward Science science faculty building for John Abbott College in Quebec.
The structural staircase connects all six floors of the science building and zigzags back and forth at the center of the building's atrium. Since the building was inspired by a ginkgo tree, the staircase has been built to facilitate the building's folded form. The atrium is a diamond shaped space that links the staircase to the atrium.
"The landscape flows into the foyer, becoming an interior topography, which transforms at the fulcrum of the building into a light-filled, vertical circulation space connecting the sciences," says the architects on the angular staircase.
The orange staircase provides a much needed contrast to the building's monochromatic color palette.
