A sinuous wood handrail follows the curve of a custom wood banister on the staircase of this contemporary urban townhouse. The blond wood finish of the handrail takes its cue from the pale hardwood floors and pops against a dark brown wall.
This wooden staircase doesn't need embellishments to make it beautiful. Vertical and horizontal natural wooden boards make up the walls and the stairs' foundation. Stained wood for the stairs and railing create a beautiful contrast. The layered railing creates a smooth and effective support for moving floor to floor.
Twin columns stand at the front of this outdoor space, with weathered wood that evokes a sense of history and place. As guests descend the stone steps towards the pool, they can hold tight to a custom handrail that was designed to mimic vines.
An inset in the wall of this contemporary stairwell creates a niche for the custom handrail, which mimics the line and finish of the light hardwood steps. Two-toned walls offer drama with neutrals. Variegated hardwood continues onto the steps from the entry to unify the spaces.
This custom project was built as the clients' forever home. Complete with a three-stop elevator, two-sided fireplace, 26' exposed steel I-beam, spa-like master bath and hand-fabricated custom perforated steel handrails, this house is a force to be reckoned with.
The designers created a more open and inviting landing to the lower level of the home. A custom railing on the existing stairs allows light from the main floor to drift downstairs. Powder-coated metal pairs with a white oak handrail.
This custom project was built as the clients' "forever home." The uniquely designed entry system leads the visitor to four separate landings as the stairs wind around and turn from concrete to "floating steel" stairs towards the top. The concrete was formed to give it a unique detail, and there are two integrated planters along the way up as well. Inside, the home offers a three-stop elevator, two-sided fireplace, 26' exposed steel I-beam, spa-like master bath and hand fabricated custom perforated steel handrails.
