In conversation with the contractor and the owner, they designed a frame that would fit the shaft perfectly. Jo-a staircases are designed to measure, to integrate the space perfectly and respond to the architecture and the needs of the inhabitants. From any position in the room, this staircase goes beyond its purely practical function and becomes a veritable sculpture that gives the apartment a great deal of class. With no central pillar and no floor rest, the large helix of the spiral stands out perfectly. Design: Jo-a
Comments are closed. In order to economise the maximum amount of space in the living room, a spiral staircase was the natural choice. They opted for a diameter of 1m60, allowing comfortable access and limited incline, without taking up too much space in the room. The spiral staircase hangs from the top steel gasket, 4m higher! It gives more space, brings light and you see the spiral form much better. The spaces in the corner of the shaft were left open so that the staircase would be lit by the natural light from above. For this project Jo-a studied the diameter, the angle of rotation and the height of the steps to present stairs that are comfortable despite the great height (4 meters!) that has to be scaled.

As part of an apartment renovation in Brussels, design firm Jo-a created a central staircase that shows off the helix of the spiral. From Jo-a
The project is a renovation of an appartment in Brussels. A light guardrail protects the access to the upper landing.
