Kendalls Hall staircase, UK

Serrano Evans Partnership

The stair as the heart of the house…interactive…connecting…all circulation united into one space…a white skin wrapping it…a blanket of timber…a sky of bronze…the wires as a mathematical game… spaces created, glimpsed. The memories of life, of those lived and those yet to be made… for spirituality…for mind and soul… to surprise and inspire.

A principal challenge was how to bring a feeling of lightness to the centre of a house with a deep floor plan and no natural light from above. How could we transform the most uncomfortable space into the most uplifting, inspiring and dynamic part of the house; the heart that beats life into it?

‘...to me, the process of making work and the process of looking at it, is about trying to regain one’s balance from a situation of constant falling into distraction.’  Antony Gormley, ‘Making Space Taking Place’
