U shaped Stairs

U Shaped stairs are basically 2 parallel flights of straight stairs joined by by a landing that requires 180 degree turn in the walk line. If a third flight is inserted into the middle of the stairs, it would become a double L stair (or quarter landing).

Advantages of U shaped Stairs:

  • U shaped stairs can be easier to fit into an architectural plan.
  • They offer some architectural interest.
  • The landing(s) can offer a resting point part way up the stairs.

Disadvantages of U shaped Stairs:

  • These types of stairs are a bit more difficult to build.
