Edible Staircase Designs

The Living Staircase from Paul Cocksedge is Stocked with Herbs

— November 5, 2013 — Eco
It can be safely said that more people would elect to take the stairs over the elevator if all offices featured the Living Staircase from Paul Cocksedge. The designer's latest project is a staircase designed to be more than just a way to go up and down. It will feature rails lined with planters and circular spaces in its spirals where employees can go for quiet time or for a quick chat.

The planters on the Living Staircase from Paul Cocksedge will be stocked with herbs and plants, letting employees make fresh tea or add a kick to their lunch. There will be three circular meeting spaces in total, with each one ringed with a wooden bench. Not many designers or architects pay much attention to the function of a staircase. Here's hoping the Living Staircase inspires creatives to do more with the functionally mundane aspects of architecture.
