StairPorn.Revit – 7.5.09: Terrace Stairs by Suppose Design Office

Before I even got a chance to get my last StairPorn.Revit entry rendered (so many problems! but I’m also experimenting with render settings 🙂 ) I’ve completed another entry!  This stair comes to us from the Suppose Design Office in Japan.  The portion of the vertical circulation element that I modeled really emphasizes the whole idea of terracing.  Notice that the landing is split and steps up, becoming another riser in itself.

SP-7.5.09-Terrace

Terrace

Anyone else see the difference in the shaded view and the render?… I have no clue what happened there…

There were a few challenges that I had (and have yet) to overcome.  For starters, I can’t do a normal landing here.  Notice in the images that I can not have any stringer between the landings.  This meant I had to separate the stairs into 2 separate objects.  Then I had to make the stringers at the bottom run straight into the floor instead of being cut off.  There are a couple ways to do this, but I found that just beginning with a riser and then lowering the riser into the floor worked well.  The upper half of the stairs had to be a different stair type that the bottom stairs to get the landing to work with the stringers.  Then there was the rail… I don’t even want to go there because we all know that aside from site tools, the railing tool lacks quite a bit.

Anyhow, despite that, here it is!  The Terrace stair by Suppose Design Office.

StairPorn.Revit – 7.31.09: Floating Stairs by Ong&Ong

This stair by Ong & Ong in the Blair Road Residence is the one that really caught my eye when I first visited StairPorn.org, so naturally I had to attempt it early in the series.  It was quite a challenge!  The treads and risers were quite simple, but the supports didn’t work quite the way I had hoped.  I couldn’t use the Railing tool like I had hoped because of it’s lack to use a Top host when you are using the “Post Per Tread” feature.

So instead I ended up using a Generic Model Component for the support threads and simple made the length what it needed to be by hand.  I think this stair is beautiful beyond belief and was very happy with the results!

StairPorn.Revit – 7.29.09: Hangover by Complett

So I was turned on (no pun intended) to this site (http://stairporn.org)a couple weeks ago and I am taking upon myself to start making some Revit versions of these stairs.  A challenge, I like!

To start things off, I went with the Hangover Stair by Complett

I think it’s a good start!
