Pushing the limitation of geometry and supplies in residence layout, Arup (in close collaboration with Layout Architect STUDIO MISHIN Architectural Bureau’s Sergey Mishin and Katya Larina and Technical Architects Daniel Llofriu Pou, Alberto Arguimbau) has designed a 3 dimensional and perforated copper staircase, particularly made as a focal level for the Villa Mallorca project. Illumination accentuates the geometry of the perforations of the copper panels with dramatic lighting from above.
“The detailed layout of the complicated structure is primarily based on a constrained set of panel varieties and interface geometries to enable for a steady appearance and an productive procurement. The set up is sequenced in this kind of a way that the structural panels interlock with every single other and a delicate substructure to lessen visible connections”, explained Jan Wurm, Arup´s Components Practice Leader for Europe. The consequence is a clad with nearly 200m² of composite panel, like handled copper, bonded and structural timber with roughly 12,000 perforations produced by a CNC water jet cutter.
