Oblique Stairs hide Perpendicular Stairs within them. The Oblique Stairs are public and hide the Perpendicular Stairs which are private and visibilised in red in the diagram below. Private lives can become routine so breaks are good: this project examines the shifts in family life. Work families vs Holiday families.

Perpendicular stairs require the person using them to step with equal strides. Oblique stairs require a break: a slight shift, a shuffle, a change of routine, stepping dance, like Fred Astaire. Or James Cagney. Or Mr Bojangles… Holiday house forces you to exercise your hips./////|||||||\\\\\\/\|\\\
