Luigi Roselli Architects has recently completed a project in Sydney, Australia, where they included a design element we don’t see too often in contemporary homes – a stairwell surrounded by glass blocks.
This stair design, which links the garage to the main living areas of the home, contains an elevator at its core ensuring the livability of the house for multiple generations.
However it’s the inclusion of translucent glass block walls that are the eye-catching design detail.
By using a patterned glass block and black grout, the designers were able to complement the black frame of the stairs, while the glass treads allow the light to travel throughout the stairwell.
The glass block walls follow the curve of the stairs and help to keep each section of the stairwell bright.
