BRIEF : The study of the Olivetti Showroom staircase in Venice by Carlo Scarpa provided the inspiration for a granite stairway at my then home. Each tread was made to the exact same size but orientated to balance with as little support as possible. A model in Corian aided the design with each step mounted on stainless steel bolts to allow light to pass between. By reversing the accommodation, views would be possible to the River Fal below.
