an area constructed between stair carriages allowing a change of
direction. Landings are a thoughtful appointment when incorporated
into a larger staircase allowing a “resting” area between
stair carriages. Also a convenient solution when space is at a premium
and a straight, continuous rise is not available, landings allow
a stair to be placed in an otherwise tight area. Landings can be
of many different sizes and shapes, but should be at least the width
of the stairs above and below.
