Concept

 

Second means of egress is one of the most important building codes that architects should follow in the US. Often the times, the second egress is considered as a redundant staircase that eats up a limited area. 

In the EEgress House, we tried to bring this unavoidable architectural element to the main design factor that makes a unique form of triple decker in Boston. Depending on how you locate these two straight-run staircases, the form of building will change without really compromising required square footage and limited amount of construction budget.
