Stair Inspiration – Spiral Staircase in the building of Ministry for Urban Development and Environment in Hamburg
Designed by Berlin architects Sauerbruch Hutton, the building of Ministry for Development and Environment comprises of a tower connected to two wings of seven “houses” with offices, exhibition and conference spaces. It is one of the spectacular buildings in Hamburg, catching the eye even from afar with a curved and multi-colored façade.
Equally as impressive in its own right, the spiral stairs in the main atrium vertically connect and activate the levels, with the timber finishes providing a tonal feature that reflects the interplay of light. The curved timber batten balustrades are a beautiful feature of this void. In combination, the undulating flow creates a welcoming and spacious ambiance for all staff and visitors.
