A mezzanine inserted at an oblique angle produces a complex requirement for a double height concrete spiral stair to bridge three orientations and dimensions of space. By shifting in radius, width, and direction of rotation along its span, the stair forms a complex figure which appears to have radically different proportions, scales, and spatial relationships with changes in vantage point, appearing to vacillate between a figure of single radius and more complex readings--and in turn differentiating a single open space through oblique viewing relationships. All other vertical figures are suppressed by using electrochromic glass for interior walls and partitions.
