When Giles Pike Architects were restoring and renovating this Victorian workshop building in London into a home fit for today, they had to redesign the stairs.
As the original stairs were awkward, steep, and positioned in a corner, they decided to place the new stairs alongside a new concrete wall that would make them easily accessible.

They also paired the upcycled wooden stair treads with a steel support to reinforce the industrial look of the new home.
