Newel stairs at the new
Axel Springer building
On a surface area of 52,000 m², the futuristic new building of the Axel Springer Group offers space for more than 3,000 employees. The interior inspires with a light-flooded, 45 m high atrium with terraced levels over 13 floors, which are connected by bridges. A special highlight are the extraordinary and spectacular newel stairs by MetallArt Treppen GmbH.
The rounded newel stairs in the new Axel Springer building in Berlin feature an imposing design. Starting on the first floor, they extend upwards over two floors with a continuous tubular steel column and parapet-high stringers on the outside. The stability is provided by the central column attached to the concrete slab and the connections via the respective landings as well as transversal supports on the load-bearing bridges. The design of the steps in a folding construction meets the current trend. As a result of the accurate grinding and the perfect filling of the visible weld seams, the newel stairs create an absolutely homogeneous appearance. The MetallArt team used only materials that correspond to the standards of the German Society for Sustainability (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Nachhaltigkeit e. V.).
