Staircase and Elevator Enclosure
Architect: Manfred Nagel
Project Type: Elevator Cabs
This residential apartment building features a dramatic use of GKD's Sambesi metal fabric. A circular staircase is constructed around an open elevator shaft. Sambesi encloses the shaft, safely hugging the inside opening of the staircase. Like elevators a century ago, the occupants can see out through the fabric while ascending and descending.
