Structural Award for The Miles Stair, Somerset House


The Miles Stair, Somerset House by Eva Jiricna Architects wins the Award for Small Projects at the Structural Awards. The structure is a lightweight and delicate intervention within the existing historic listed building.

Judges comment:

“The judges were impressed by the innovative use of materials and structural form to generate this dynamic and dramatic spiral staircase. The delicate filigree mesh of the central cylinder belies its ability to support the 4 storey height stair, and the refined detailing of the ultra-high strength precast stair treads and glass balustrade are a testament to the engineer’s art.”
