The Somerset House Miles Stair is a modern ethereal intervention.

‘The stair comprises distinct elements: the central cylinder is a filigree and reflective network which supports the minimally sculpted treads, with a glass balustrade tying the whole assembly together. The cantilevered pre-cast stair treads are in ultra-high-performance concrete (the first such application of this material) and the design expertly exploits the material’s strength and dimensional stability to produce a stair of refined size, which is a complicated yet economic assembly.’ [Source: istructe.org]
