Project



Transformation through movement: with a single step on the stair, the counterweighted staircase gently drops down, extending to the garden. With one small movement, something large occurs.  

Designed with Douglas Gauthier, Fulcrum Stair provided a client with a second-floor apartment access to the back garden.

But it also serves to fuse structure with form. Structure is often thought of as the skeleton for form. But in the work of System Architects, form is no longer just shape, and structure is no longer just support: the roles are indistinguishable.
