Staircase in Le Marais


rue de Braque

I teach in an old building (~18th c.) in Le Marais, which is on a tiny road (rue de Braque), which opens onto a big open courtyard when you push the heavy and imposing deep blue door of the building open.


The courtyard.

I have worked here for a year now and just this week I made a grand discovery. This staircase:



The staircase is original (so presumably 18th c.) and is a stunner. It is hidden, in corner of the courtyard I never go to, but once you walk through the doors, the staircase unfolds and shows its wonders.


Looking up.


And down.
