Architects love to be inventive and stairs are one place where they can enjoy showing off what they can do. There are some really beautiful staircases around. And then there are the ones that remind you why we have health and safety regulations. Sometimes these can be too restrictive. Do we really have to assume that a small child is going to put enormous effort into sticking their head through a bannister?
