due to lot orientation and proportion, we needed to find a way to get more light into the house, specifically during the middle of the day. the solution that we came up with was the location of the stairs along the long south property line, combined with the glass railing, skylights, and some windows into the stair well. we allowed the stairs to project through the glass as thought the glass had sliced through the steps.

Tread lightly on the stairsThis genius staircase has very thin strip lights under each tread, creating enough light to illuminate the whole area without dazzling the eyes – crucial if a late-night jaunt downstairs is a possibility. The clear glass baluster makes the most of the glow, allowing it to spread through the space.These lighting pieces bring shine to the staircase area
