Extrodinary looking Emmental Stairs by Biljana Jovanovic
Biljana Jovanovic, Croatian architect based in Budapest (Hungary), has completed the apartment with unique decorative staircase. The Emmental Stairs was designed for young and creative family with two small children to combine several functions. Firstly, of course, it provides the connection between first and second floors of the house. Secondly, it visually divides the space of the first floor into dining room and living room. Thirdly, it is great fun for children - "cheese holes" create the infinite field for games. Due to holes, like in Emmental cheese and white color the living space looks very light. Steps are fixed in a playful zigzag manner. According to the author, the triangular shape of the steps also solves the problem of the steepness of the stairs.
