To create the illusion of a floating stair, designers hid the support in the wall behind the stairs. This support, along with the co-planar, clear-tempered glass rails and childproof open slots elegantly comply with New York's rigorous safety code as well as the highest child safety standards.
Don’t put off dealing with a wobbly stair railing, especially if you have kids in the house. “A stair railing should resist a force of about 200 pounds,” says Frank Lesh, owner of Home Sweet Home Inspection Company in Indian Head Park, Ill. “A little movement is normal, but if it shakes just by touching it, you’ve got a problem.” You may be able to tighten the railing’s attachment to the wall yourself if it’s short, but a long railing or one with a balcony will likely require the attention of a pro.
The stair design in the Capitol Hill Residence reinforces the concept of the central light core and makes for a dynamic entry and circulation space. Its apparent simplicity of form and material enhances the overall light and airy quality of the interior spaces.
