Warm stairs / Heating pipes

Warm stairs
Warm stairs

Why don’t we make full use of the warmth of the heating pipeline? When we walk out of our warm houses, we definitely don’t want to be exposed to coldness immediately nor touch the ice-cold handrails. This design aims to transport heat to every family through hollow handrails. In this way, the heating pipelines would get artistic and save some space while the whole corridor and handrails will become warm.
