Fluid Structures were appointed to work with Studio Lipparini on a private residence in Amman.
The work includes the design of a single storey uneven spiral staircase. The proposed staircase is quite large with a travel distance of some 7 metres. The original staircase was designed using pre-cast concrete for the primary structure. We have been assessing the design in terms of dynamic response, vibration, load bearings and fundamental frequency, we are currently advising that the staircase is fabricated in steel plates instead.
