SDM-Apartment-Mumbai-Arquitectura-Movimiento-Workshop-1Attention-getting staircases aren’t exactly a novel concept in contemporary architecture, but, by any measure, this ultra refined apartment scheme offers up one of the more astonishing staircase designs in recent memory. Aiming to create vertical continuity between each of the 3 duplex apartments that comprise a 6-story family home in the city of Mumbai, India, the architectural firm of Arquitectura en Movimiento Workshop arrived at an ingenious visual device, both practical and esthetically compelling—with a staircase that’s as much art piece as segue.

Occupying the heart of each duplex’s floor plan, a composition of thick horizontal wood treads, gently bent at both ends, snakes upwards, connecting each floor to the one above, while creating a delineating element in the wide open spaces below. “It was designed as a sculpture in the space with more light and natural ventilation,” say the architects, of their esthetically weighty, but visually poetic design. An awe-inspiring creation, not surprisingly, that they’ve positioned to be visible from most anywhere in the apartmentand who could blame them for that?
