Haptic Architects Create a Floating Design in This Oslo Home

In order to maintain an open space, yet still create a slight divide in the Idunsgate apartment in Oslo, Haptic architects placed a suspended steel staircase in the center.

The design offers a small kind of divide between the two areas, without cutting them off from each other completely. The steel staircase looks like it's suspended in mid air, connected only at the second level. The result is an unobtrusive design that works well with this smaller apartment. Individuals can still have access to the floor above, while making the most of the living room and kitchen area. Half of the stairs are made from a white-coated steel, with the stepping area finished with a smooth wood.

Haptic architects made the most of this space by using this suspended design.
