The Stairs and Elevator
The stairs that lead to the upper levels provides access to the apartments. It retains its original character and materials i.e. solid larch wood railings and steps. There is a landing on each level. The preservation and restoration of this stairs was a considered part of the project. Components were dismantled, numbered, cleaned and restored.
The installation of an elevator was deemed necessary for ease of access to the upper floors, as the original stairs and steps were steep and high. The elevator has been placed, for functional reasons, beside the stairwell to allow access to the various levels.
