Inspirational Plywood Stairs

in Design,inspiration

Yesterday we had a brief meeting at ISA to discuss the progress on the construction documents and the general kitchen design. Hopefully more on the kitchen design later as we have a meeting lined up with Pappajohn Woodworking to discuss sustainable options.

Anyways, the point of this post is the plywood stairs proposed by ISA. They have gained inspiration from the modern, plywood stairs built in the Chicken Point Cabin by OSKA Architects. Their project uses a lot simple materials such as plywood and concrete in the same theme as our project.

Plywood Stair - OSKA

The stair shown and the one ISA has designed is constructed entirely of plywood. It gains the structural strength required by gluing three sheets together for the treads and supporting walls. ISA also added some rectangular cutouts in the walls to mimic the window openings in the facades. The supporting walls also orient the sheets of plywood in the same direction as the plywood floor on the second floor so it will appear as an extension of the floor from the second floor view.

I am still a bit skeptical of whether we can afford to pull this design off, but I love it and we will do our best to get it in.

If you enjoyed reading this post I can promise you'll love our new writing over at Postgreen Homes. Yeah, we know that's the same thing your favorite band said and their new album is nowhere near as good as their early stuff, but seriously, we are actually still getting better.

There also isn't much conversation to be had here . . . at least not with us. So come on over to the Postgreen Homes Blog and tell us what you think of our new(ish) digs and crazy ideas. We will be sure to tell you what we think of your opinion.

I know you are already deep into the kitchen design but I just saw this post on Remodelista and thought of your project. Simple, clean and movable.

Thanks for the great blog!

I love those stairs! Just brilliant and beautiful! Cost is a concern though. Also can you get away with no risers, from a code stand point? If you can that would be just a beautiful stair.

I too have been thinking of using plywood for stairs, but on a tradition set up. My biggest concern is the edges chipping when shoes are run across them. Does anyone have any ideas as to seal the cut exposed ends?

Tyler – Using a good multi-core plywood like Apple Ply should solve this problem. One where all the voids in each layer are filled so the sheet is completely solid all the way through…
