When a homeowner in Portugal wanted to combine two apartments into one, he hired Correia/Ragazzi Arquitectos to renovate the space -including adding a staircase to connect the two units. While the entire remodel looks wonderful, the staircase designed by the architects is the rea highlight.
The U-shaped staircase has thick, white balustrades, which contrast drastically with the 3D, geometric floor in the foyer where the staircase sits. The white and black walls of the room and wooden stairs further accentuate the color palate, creating a warm, vivid space that's lively and inviting.
