Today, the first basalt element for the urban stairs we have design in Tórshavn, have been cut out. The material comes from the basalt quarry of Skopun, in the Island of Sandoy, in the Faroe Islands. The extracted stone weighed 250 tons and was broken into 20-28 tons pieces and each slice has a thickness of 15 centimeters weighting around 3-4 tons each. The stairs are composed of more than 1,000 granite elements, 400 tons of finished material, disposed in 8 different steps, which are following the landscape.
