A beautiful private house and stair designed by Patrick Lewis Architects in Hampstead, North London. The detail and build quality of the stair in particular were pretty amazing.
A cooperatively sunny day and three very cooperative children made this an enjoyable shoot. These images will be appearing in the Sunday Times in the near future.
The main image, a multi-exposeure demonstrating the uses designed into the staircase:

Elevational view of the staircase. Technically a difficult shot, this is a stitch of two 5×4″ film negatives, the first showing the upper portion of the stair, the second the lower:
Wide view of the bespoke staircase.
Looking up through the staircase from the ground floor level.
These were shot on large format film, 5×4″ Fuji Pro 160NS, using the Toyo VX125b, with Schneider 58mm f5.6 Super-Angulon XL, Schneider 72mm f5.6 Super-Angulon XL, Rodenstock 135mm f5.6 Apo-Sironar-S.
