Cantilever means a long projecting beam which is fixed at only one end. Generally, the architects and the engineers tend to make their projects less expensive and more attractive. For that purpose, they should find a way how to use less material, but to achieve the wanted effect. For example, the stairs with such design, are attached to the wall, only on one side. Also, for less materials, they do not have anything on the sides. But if the owner ask for such part, it can be turned into a piece of art, something unusual and minimalist.
