MONUMENTAL STAIR – BANANA REPUBLIC

When a Michigan Avenue retailer needed a new staircase within their space, they envisioned a one-of-a-kind sculpture.  Our office was able to help them realize their vision through the integration of translucent architectural treads, open vierendeel truss stringers /landings and a suspension system that used steel rods to hang the stair off the structure above.  Our structural design unified all of these artistic elements into a graceful staircase that performs to the standards of a much more stout assembly.
