Before and After: A Squeezed-In Staircase

Designers Gabriella Gustafson & Mattias Ståhlbom from TAF were commissioned by a family in Stockholm, Sweden, to create a staircase in this cramped space.

To see the designers' surprising solution, just


The left-side photo shows the staircase looking up, while the right-side photo shows what the stairs look like from the top of the staircase. I love this design, but I wonder if sleepy stair travelers might go bump in the night if they don't pay attention to the pattern of the stairs.

I think it's nice if you have a small space but it looks "danger" to me, especially if you have kids or living with clumsy people around

So gorgeous and innovative! In my old dorm I had a loft section, and there was a slightly slanted but still very steep ladder leading up to it, and since this was freshman year, there were a few drunk nights that could have posed a lot of danger. . .but you get so agile using it after a while that navigating it becomes second nature. I'd guess this would be similar. You'd definitely get the hang of it after a few time. Also, people were mentioning how there is now handrail. . .with our ladder we used the upper rungs to hold onto, and this looks steep enough where you could do the same thing. I LOVE it!
