Palazzo Sacchetti is a late Renaissance building among the most beautiful of Rome. Its construction was carried out in 1542 by Sangallo, the architect of Palazzo Farnese and coadjutor of Raffaello in the construction of St. Peter’s Basilica. Sangallo built it for himself, dedicating the last years of his life to make it the “perfect building.” In 1608, it was bought by the Archbishop of Naples, who built the chapel frescoed by Agostino Ciampelli. Later, in the second half of the 17th century It was purchased by the Marquis Sacchetti of Florence. Palazzo Sacchetti is a pearl in the heart of Rome; not surprisingly it has been used as a set for some scenes in the Oscar-winning film The Great Beauty, of which the eternal city is the real protagonist.

Art & Home | Stairways From Heaven

FullSizeRender

The latest volume of Art & Home is here! This month, Iyna Bort Caruso showcases homes with captivating and architecturally significant staircases from around the world.

Staircases are among the oldest architectural elements, conceived in function and, in the most dramatic cases, elevated to an art object.

Their roles in literature and history are classic. Think the iconic staircase in Gone with the Wind, the red-carpeted staircase of the White House and the heart-shaped limestone staircase at Rosecliff, the great Gilded Age mansion in Newport, Rhode Island. Then there is the famed Tulip Stairs at the Queen’s House, the former royal villa in Greenwich, England. Its self-supporting spiral staircase reflects a brilliant harmony of mathematics and majesty.

“Staircases add value,” says Diletta Giorgolo Spinola of Italy Sotheby’s International Realtywith offices in FlorenceRomeMilan and Como. “They are a status symbol. Throughout the ages, staircases have played an important role in giving a house a special style and elegance.”

$8,900,000 USD | Park City, Utah | Summit Sotheby’s International Realty

Staircases define the character of a home and set the tone for the interior design to come. In estates of distinction they can be the unexpected focal point, expressing power by their twists and turns. They long ago stopped being simply an answer to an age-old challenge, getting from point A on one level to point B on another. They are a showcase of innovation and ingenuity.

Winding, curved, spiral, helical, flared, twin and seemingly gravity-defying are among the countless options and variations. Staircases are complex affairs. All parts need to interact structurally. Building codes ensure aesthetic considerations do not eclipse safety and functionality concerns.

NOTE we think this is a unique perspective[2]

While the evolution of technology has helped to turn staircases into architectural stars, they can function beyond visual showpieces. They can be experiential. Custom builder Ted Visnic of Visnic Homes in Rockville, Maryland, says some homeowners, for instance, ask that staircases be “tucked around a corner so you discover them, if you will.” Others request staircases be framed by a bank of windows to “wash the homeowners in natural light” as they ascend and descend the stairs, Visnic adds.

$6,900,000 USD | South Barrington, Illinois | Jameson Sotheby’s International Realty

Shape, materials and finishes dictate pricing. One of Visnic’s current residential projects is an estate in which the staircase cost upwards of $120,000–not bad for a scene-stealing work of art.
