Kitchen looking South towards the garage / backyard with windows at the stair landing and above stair.

The stair beyond is built of cold rolled steel and white oak shelves which filters the light from above.  A dutch door sits between the window system of the stair landing and exterior wall allowing access to the backyard garden and garage.
