Southern Staircase installation crew hoisting custom built staircase into place. A radius staircase within a clerestory atrium can be a dramatic architectural element when balanced within the design as a whole. The Daulton design provides the necessary volume upstairs and down for the staircase to fit comfortably within the plan.
This allows the space to feel light and airy as the curvilinear lines of the stairs helix upward to the commons of the second story. Clerestory windows just below the atrium's coffered tray ceiling filter light across the space contributing to the ethereal atmosphere suited for receiving.
