11 Staircase Concrete Tread Wood Tread Design Photos And Ideas

A double-height glass wall looks out onto the home’s courtyard entrance.
Custom-designed, concrete-and-walnut stairs that are lit from underneath by Concreteworks connect the bedroom floor to the lower garden floor.
A staircase guides visitors from the home's entry in the rough cement base to the bright and airy residential space.
The staircase was moved to the other side of the room and is now a sculptural focal point, thanks to a striking material change from wood to concrete.
“The concrete then carries on to form a work surface and kitchen countertop,” said Marway.
"By the time a user climbs from entrance at the lowest level to the topmost floor, they will have climbed 35 feet without realizing it," says Misra. "We interviewed more than 50 people who had visited the site at different times, and none of them realized the slow height progression of the Three Step House, since the stairs were broken up into small, discrete runs."
Concrete and timber meet again on the stairs that lead to the upper level.
Perforated black metal has also been used in the design of the staircase.

Whether grand and sweeping, rendered in wood, or a minimalist arrangment of metal and glass, the modern staircase is an example of literally elevated design. With its strong, geometric shape and functional importance, a masterful staircase can serve as the centerpiece of a building. Below are some notable examples of staircases that refuse to be ignored, and the creative tread and railing decisions that comprise them.
