Stair Wall Designs & Ideas
We found old house numbers...primed and painted them and hung on our staircase. We love it!
Lopez Duplan Arquitectos
The house was built in the early 80's and is located west of Mexico City. The remodeling made by Claudia Lopez Duplan was a total renovation of both space and image. In addition to interior and exterior renovation, major changes were also made in all the facilities, especially for the unification of the public areas. The house is divided in three and a half levels. In the intermediate floor the number and proportion of windows was increased to take advantage of views to the forest and gain entrance of natural light. There was also a total change of the window screens to integrate the terraces and open areas to the interior of each space maintaining a bond with all the services. All the spaces were unified using a limited selection of materials. In the interior engineer wood floors and light marble were combined, and for the kitchen it was used granite in the same shade. In the exterior all the floors and part of the wall are covered with dark gray stone. In the interior design the ladder – that gives access to the public and private areas of the house - is the central axis. All the walls around it were removed to integrate all the spaces. In the living room the generous existing height was used to play with the plafonds and the indirect lighting, enhancing the deep sensation of the space and highlighting the artwork. The private areas are located at the top floor in which large windows were also incorporated to make the most of the views. In the master bedroom the window is framed by a bookcase designed specifically for the needs of the space that enhances the view and makes it cozier. The bathroom is a large space from which you can also enjoy spectacular views; the washbasin was located at the center. Significant changes were made on all the facades, from structural changes to the incorporation of new finishes for the renewal to be perceived from the entrance. In the gardens surrounding the house a complete transformation project was also done respecting an existing large tree that sets the tone for the new image.

Renovation of a turn of the century home by Maritz & Young in the St. Louis area. Alise O'Brien Photography
The driving impetus for this Tarrytown residence was centered around creating a green and sustainable home. The owner-Architect collaboration was unique for this project in that the client was also the builder with a keen desire to incorporate LEED-centric principles to the design process. The original home on the lot was deconstructed piece by piece, with 95% of the materials either reused or reclaimed. The home is designed around the existing trees with the challenge of expanding the views, yet creating privacy from the street. The plan pivots around a central open living core that opens to the more private south corner of the lot. The glazing is maximized but restrained to control heat gain. The residence incorporates numerous features like a 5,000-gallon rainwater collection system, shading features, energy-efficient systems, spray-foam insulation and a material palette that helped the project achieve a five-star rating with the Austin Energy Green Building program.
