1/30/2020 - The Stairs

We had been looking at the the stair design, perusing ideas and had come to the conclusion that a single steel beam design was about as radical as one could reasonably do, but our architect decided that wasn’t modernistic and clean enough, so he went to the limit! A full floating design is what was needed. 

This reminds me of one of my favorite quotes - “A designer knows that he has achieved perfection not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away” - Antoine de St-Expurey The architect has achieved perfection! There is absolutely nothing left to remove, the central stinger is gone, the railing is just a few cables, and the steps just float!.

We can’t wait to how the renders compare to reality!

This was one of the stair ideas that we’d sort of liked

We liked the way this seemed to float.

This is the architects early rendering of the stair design that he wanted Wow! Not impossible after all…

Final lighting added.

Rendered in place with the full cable railing and both tread lights and floor lights on.

Rendered in place with the pool cover retracted and only the stair tread lights on.
