Here's the official website.

Where was that built? As far as I know that passes no building code in the US which is a shame. The building codes put a damper on so much creativity. :-(

Is there a building code that says your banister can't look like a tree?

There are building codes regarding baluster spacing. The ballusters (which are the posts that hold up the banister) must not be further than 4in. apart, so a toddler's head cannot pass through. Maybe that's why this wouldn't pass code? I'm not sure.

sorry guys, i have absolutely no idea about the building codes...

Never mind baluster spacing, this railing looks like it'd snap like a twig (pun very much intended) the first time someone leaned on it.

fantastic design but sadly would never work in the states due to previously mentioned building codes which were implemented to protect children and idiots who act like children.

@Jim, it could easily be made out of metal.

The design might pass code if you put plastic/glass sheets on either side of the railing.

Did noone even begin to think what would happen say... if someone fell down the stairs? Could you imagine the impalement or even eye impalement that this structure could produce? #$%^ no this is a horrible idea. The base is pretty though. Very natural.

That's the most amazing design for a stair way I've ever seen. I dream with it every day !

Looks great! I made a similar but more simple style balustrade about 25 years ago.in a little cottage. To meet with todays building codes in the US & UK you would need to use glass on the inside, however this can be etched to echo the branches and even the glass could have curved edges.
