Tips for designing with stair wells as light wells
- Consider opening the stairwell up to adjacent spaces (open plan lower levels) to allow full benefits of the light & ventilation - check your local fire regulations.
- If stacking more than one stair run, consider designing in a small void that allows daylight from above to continue to the lowest floor.
- Make use of low head height space by placing the stair climb below the roof slope & adding roof windows for ’wow’ effect.
