A. Studio stair 3d model: quick study done within Autocad 2002 drawing file, when I decided to throw a curve into the stair, and to cantilever the
treads out of the wall. The spatial quality of the room - and the cost - increased by a factor of five.
B. Studio stair form: This form was made out of scraps of form plywood and lumber previously used in the forming of the exterior walls. I laid out the
tread apertures on the outer plywood form. The treads were placed into the form, together with the massive reinforcement steel. Each tread has
horizontal and vertical rebar tied to the wall rebar cage. The form took 3 weeks for one person to build. The hand-mixed pour took 4 hours, for six
C. The 4" x 12" douglas fir planks are embedded in concrete, and a heavy person can trample up and down the stair, with no perceptive flexing.
