Staircase The Hague

For the city of The Hague (NL) this staircase design tracks the boardroom´s circular perimeter and then rises up to a walkway in a sweeping motion, offering a great view of the atrium below. 

The staircase was made from glue-laminated sheets of timber and subsequently milled tread by tread before being assembled on-site.
