Staircase with Human Sculptures reading by Abin Design Studio

Located on the outskirts of Bangalore in Karnataka, India this staircase with human sculptures was designed by Abin Design Studio to first and foremost create a connection with the earth outside so while the life-sized reading sculptures are the main focal point, the staircase itself rests on and is embedded in locally sourced Sadarahali granite.

When you first enter the home, the staircase with human sculptures are not the first thing you notice, but rather the roughness of the traditional stone sitting on top of a smoothly polished marble floor. You also get a further connection to the earth by the courtyard planting clearly visible on the other side of the wall.

Earth is not the only natural element featured near the stairwell. The outdoor pool continues into an indoor alcove surrounded by glass.

The dining area is right next to the pool feature and overlooks the stairwell. Earth is featured here as well within the living edge slab tabletop which is kept front and centre with the use of clear acrylic dining chairs and a bench.

The casualness of the staircase with human sculptures gives off the impression of a sloped parkland with people sitting on a flight of outdoor steps. This visual is further enhanced by the tree on the other side of the window.

Adding a touch of treescaping on the inside is that beautifully carved wooden pillar. It too is attached to locally sourced Sadarahali granite base representing the ground below while the mezzanine hallway above is abstractly the tree canopy.

Parks with stairwells usually have brightly coloured handrails made out of tubular steel and this stairwell continues this aesthetic with its bold red tubular steel design.

The staircase with human sculptures isn’t the only artistic figurative display, upstairs a row of 7 rock – or in this case wall - climbers is suspended in a row.
