The installation of a standard stairway in a home assumes a surprisingly significant area that can take away from the interior comforts you might have liked to include. The Amaral Loft was a refurbishment project by feedback-studio that thankfully lost very little valuable space thanks to its striking set of steps.
Access between the top and bottom levels of the luxe but minimalist open plan floors is granted by the clever incorporation of a nearly spiral staircase that's been tucked into a closet-sized nook in the Portuguese apartment. There is no bulky support structure beneath the treads and no walls or railings to contain them, for the Amaral Loft's upstairs access is formed from slender and gently tapering slabs that appear to float out of the surrounding walls.
