The floorplans of average homes are only getting smaller, creating a need for ingenious space-saving measures. If you’re building a two-story house, what you’ll often find is that a staircase can take up a significant amount of room. Of course, you can counteract its bulk by including storage underneath, but it’s no longer the only solution. That’s where the fold-away Hybrid Stairs from Australian design company Bcompact comes in.
The award-winning staircase and ladder aim to add a new element of convenience to the small homes of today. While it functions as a standard staircase, it also takes up no room at all.
The staircase and ladders fold flat against your wall, with a spring-loaded function to put it into place when you need it. The superior balancing and lightweight materials mean that both the young and elderly will not have any problems putting their new staircase into place.
For it to be lightweight, the stairs feature a sustainably sourced bamboo material. This bamboo is durable, flexible, lightweight, and aesthetic. You can operate the stairs from the floor or landing, with the handrail moving the stairs and optional safety gate into place.
Currently, you can order these hybrid stairs to fit your unique location. Both national and international orders are available, with an average lead time of six to eight weeks. More information here
