Structurally, there was a lot of work to be done, and in only a small amount of space (100 square metres to be exact). Taking priority was the development of a functional, unobtrusive staircase: a feat in a confined space. And so came the ingenious idea to suspend the staircase above the kitchen and utilise the countertop as a landing. In writing, this may sound illogical, but seeing it makes perfect sense. To get up to the counter, one must simply walk up a smaller set of pale-pink steps.
