Electronics/Building construction without Staircase.
Is it possible to construct a Building i.e. residential or commercial complex without Staircase ?. Is it feasible to built ?.
The people will always use Lifts / elevators instead of alternative of staircase.
i.e. The space occupied by the staircase will be replaced by additional Lifts / elevators.
What are the pros (advantages) and cons (disadvantages) if such a building model is constructed without staircase (if feasible) ?.
Examples : 10 floor commercial complex, 6 floor residential complex etc.
Thanks & Regards,

Didn't I answer this question previously?
Their are reasons to enjoy and appreciate stairs in some cases.
Some buildings have structures that bend and leave the elevator shaft inoperative in cases of strong winds or earthquake; therefore, breakout places are needed to allow for exiting of human bodies on upper floors.
I know of no buildings with 6 floors or more that do not have stairs; that is not to say the technology may change that.
