Marketing - Real Estate / website for architectural firm
Italian term or phrase: giro scala
This is a series of descriptions of projects the firm has completed. Can't find the term "giro scala" or "giroscala"

faretti ad incasso con sorgenti LED nella zona cucina e sul giro scala

Could this be "stairwell" or perhaps "spiral staircase"?

Thanks.

stairwell
Explanation:
The vertical space where the stairs are located. The giro doesn't necessarily have to be circular - could be square or rectangular - so I would say spiral would be too specific.
