This under-stair sitting area is most likely inspired by the regulations surrounding compliancy for stair building codes. Basically, there must be something preventing users from slamming their heads into the underside of the stairwell. This often makes for a very awkward space under the stair, especially if the architect hopes to make the stair a centrally located component of the design. It is commonly sorted out with, at worst, a closet; and, at best, an elevated display area. This is completely inspired for that area, both artistically and pertaining to code.
Who knew our biggest challenges could be our best inspiration. Oh wait we all know it, it’s just a matter of doing it…
