Two Spiral Staircases Help Create This Unique Home Design
Architect Alexis Dornier together with interior designer Silvia Fairman, have completed a new home in the Balinese jungle, that features a unique design centered around a pair of spiral staircases.
Drawing inspiration from the beauty of nature and a desire to challenge architectural norms, the design took shape as a figure 8, offering continuous fluid movement and ever-changing vantage points.
Carefully selected materials including concrete, wood, and natural stone, seamlessly integrate the home with the surrounding greenery.
Stepping inside, it’s immediately apparent that the home has a unique design. The architect mentioned, “bending materials in two dimensions and resolving complex geometrical situations required meticulous planning and collaboration with skilled artisans.”
The spiraling design of the home creates different areas and elevations leading down to the pool and up to the rooftop.
Hidden lighting showcases the design of the stairs and the spiral handrail, which can be seen throughout the home.
Some areas, like the kitchen, span across two different steps and follow the curve of the exterior wall.
Doorways located off the staircases lead to the bedrooms and bathrooms.
The design of the bedrooms complements the rest of the interior, with hidden lighting continuing to be used to showcase the stairs.
In the bathroom, wood screens open to the jungle, while blue-green tiles line the two-person open shower.
The stairs continue to the roof where they meet with sitting areas and solar panels.
