Ruth Slavid talks architecture

Style over substance?

A gorgeous looking stair in this house by Paul Cha architect, but it does raise a couple of questions.

Are they more flexible in the US than the UK about regulations? Would I dare go up it after a few drinks? Cha says he takes a Zen approach to his architecture, but not sure how Zen I would feel after a tumble down this.

    we have been designing an office in santa monica for a few months now and i have learnt much more about american stair regulations than i ever wanted to !
    perhaps california is worse because of the earthquake issues but their regs are much tougher than hours for office use anyhow
