Dezeen’s top 10 staircases of 2014.
by Architects Hagy Belzberg and Joan Behkne remake Gores Group. Behnke’s interest in pattern and form is evident in gestures small and grand. “Computer modeling facilitates design at all different scales,” he says. The staircase, a composition of complex curves with chamfered edges, has limestone treads, lit by LEDs, and a curvaceous guardrail of cerused-ash slats. It’s a seductive connector. So much so that most staffers bypass the cylindrical glass elevator, which ascends and descends alongside a carved cerused-oak screen wall. “When I was in Italy, I saw a centuries-old marble facade that was punctured and curved,” Behnke says of the inspiration for one of the patterns in the screen’s evolving surface via Interior Design.
