Elliptical Stairway     -next ->

This stairway is of an interesting, oblong elliptical shape necessitated by the shape of the building it was made for. The stringers were made from mahogany pieces bent and wrapped onto a form and laminated.The treads are made from extremely durable wenge to resist wear and airborne termites. This stairway spans three floors. photo credit: Max Hatfield Biondo Return to Gallery
