Located in Peru, <a href="http://martindulanto.com/proyecto/casa-blanca/" rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Casa Blanca</a> was designed by <a href="http://martindulanto.com/" rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Martín Dulanto</a> with not only floor-to-ceiling sliding glass panels that disappear to turn the interior into an open air space, but with an eye-popping, spiral orange staircase that connects all the floors.
The four-story Modern Mews
house was renovated by Coffey Architects
and includes this narrow turning oak staircase that comes to an end with a small set of concrete stairs at the bottom. The concrete structure also doubles as a fireplace on the ground floor.

When two contemporary art collectors in Kansas City, Missouri, wanted to build a new house to exhibit their extensive collection, they looked to <a href="http://hufft.com/" rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Hufft</a> to make it happen. The couple had been collecting art, including paintings, photography, and sculpture, over the course of 20 years and that required a sub-grade gallery space, the new “heart: of the home, with proper lighting and climate control to display it. While a good portion of the art resides in the gallery, the rest is displayed in the other hallways and atriums, or “arteries”, which is how the home got its name – the <a href="http://hufft.com/project/artery-residence/" rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Artery Residence</a>.
The exterior displays its own share of artwork with large-scale sculptures installed around the garden.
The upper level houses five bedrooms – one for the homeowners, two for their children, and two additional for houseguests. Aluminum louvers help shade the interior.

The single-story house feels much larger thanks to a double-height corner entrance that’s outfitted with large windows that let in lots of natural light.
