Storage can be included, with bookcases for example, but also the stair can wrap around tight spaces or run up a double height space.” Architect Michael Crowley adds: “The design of a staircase is not purely an aesthetic decision. This is one of the crucial elements of the house because you don’t only see it and utilise it, but daily you touch it. It’s the tactile centre of the building.” #staircase
