10 Innovative Modern Stair Designs: Cantilevered Stairs…

When I was growing up I thought about being either an architect or a structural engineer…I love the calculating and innovating behind how a building stands up as well as the creativity and detail that goes into the design of the building. On a smaller scale, it’s easy to see why the stairs, especially cantilevered stairs, would be one of my favorite features in residential architecture. It’s simple design, yet you still have to crunch numbers + be creative to make it work AND remain elegant.

Today’s post includes some beautiful examples of cantilevered stairs…some showing more detail and some for overall design inspiration… The beauty is, of course, in the details:

Modern Stair Design by Build LLC – Design + Detail which illustrate that a stair should be “Beauty in Translation: We like to design with an ‘everything it needs to be and nothing more’ attitude and the building code gives us a backbone to this philosophy. Every piece of steel, every dimension and every guard in this stair design is there for a reason; there’s nothing superfluous.” – from Build Blog
