St. John’s plans revamp of iconic entry

Insight Architects notes a project in its January newsletter – a rather major change to the entry stairs for St. John’s Cathedral.

Currently, stairs just start spilling off the side of the building in a straight descent. The new design would provide a larger landing at the top, with a set of curved L-shaped stairways on each side.

Insight also says they will revamp a side staircase of the cathedral building at 8th & Hays.

“The utmost care will be taken to preserve the charm of the banisters, and there is a chance the steps will be heated as well,” Insight wrote in its newsletter.
