M Lofts

Two custom designed loft beds carefully integrated into the bedrooms of an apartment in a converted industrial building. The alternate tread stair was designed to be a perfect union of functionality, structure and form. With regard to functionality, the stair is comfortable, safe to climb, and spatially efficient; the open sides of the stair provide ample and well-placed grip locations. With regard to structure, the triangular geometry of the tread, riser and stringer allows for the tread and riser to be securely and elegantly fastened to a single, central, very minimal stringer.

    No, you climb it like a ladder, but it's more comfortable than a ladder. In fact it's surprisingly easy and intuitive to use. You wouldn't use it as a regular stair, but it's great for accessing a loft bed like in this project.

    These are known as Space Saver stairs, I've chucked a more traditional image above.

    I found it a little odd the first time I used one, but half way up the filght it became very natural.
