Staircase to heaven

The only access to the old warehouse at 55, Great Suffolk Str. was provided through a door, located 2 meter above ground level. At the beginning the only possibility to access the building was by using a ladder, which was stored inside. But after some time, more and more people were interested in the building and our private space began to open versus the outside – we needed a more simple and comfortable access. The staircase is built out of different wood leavings. The narrow foothold of the steps assures an unfettered use of the pavement. The upper platform pokes out of the building, which was from now on open to the public all-day.
