Wooden Strip Staircases by Jouin Manku

Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku of ‘Jouin Manku’ re-designed an eighteenth-century building to create a 55-room hotel and adjoining restaurant; the crown jewel is the wooden staircase encircled by strips of oak.

The wooden staircase begins at the entrance level and sits between the open kitchen and a circular bar. The timber strips extend off the staircase and run along the back wall. The oak spirals also create handrails for the wooden staircase.
