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.
Stairways—both concrete and corten steel—connect this terraced backyard. All around the stairs are a graceful mix of perennials and grasses, with planters helping to soften the transition between levels.
Modern, angular steel stairs by Word + Carr Design Group adds character to the arid Austin, Texas, landscape. The gravel walkway complements the rocky hillside where this home sits. The landscape design won the ASLA 2018 Award of Excellence in the Residential Design Category.
This year interior designer Linda Woodrum went against the grain of mundane laundry rooms and enlivened the space with a sleek stainless steel accent wall and vibrant local artwork. “When you come up to the top of the stairs we have this amazing subway tile and we hung a cool piece of art on it and it’s just really beautiful with the shiny tile and the art,” says interior designer Linda Woodrum.
This home's staircase combines both traditional and contemporary influences. The blackened steel and original concrete walls add an industrial flair to the area, while the staircase's glass and wood combination add a modern element to the space.
This traditional entrance makes a statement with vaulted ceilings, a stunning chandelier and a sophisticated steel door. Hardwood stairs juxtapose the softer flooring in the foyer without taking away any elegance from the space.
To minimize the presence of the stair in the hallway the designer eliminated the need for the outer stringer. Instead, they cantilevered the tread supports from a single stringer located adjacent to the wall. The treads themselves are sandblasted acrylic mounted to a pair of tapered steel angles. The tread design allows for maximum light to pass through to the space below. Glass infill panels create the guard at both the stair rail and surrounding guards. With the use of 2 layers of laminated glass no top rail was required at the guard locations. To support the glass, steel bar stanchions span between floors levels, adding an element of continuity to the various levels of the stacked stair. High levels of precision were required during the detailing and construction process to maintain absolute alignment between 3 levels as the stairway extends from upper bridge to the basement.
Black steel pickets contrast with the pressure-treated pine selected for a set of stairs extending from a screened back porch to the yard. Innovative Construction, based in Roswell, Ga., designed the outdoor living space and stairs.
