The transparent glass railing system along with monochromatic grays in the hand rails and treads keep this expansive space open and full of light. Far from dull: the natural light and white walls make for dynamic geometric ornamentation wending across the walls in the changing light. The open treads also afford a better view from the entrance, and the glass railing system means the views and light in the atrium can be enjoyed from more of the second floor.
Clean geometry and fascinating shadows make for a space that has a lot of visual interest without being cluttered or overly ornamented.
The glass wall allows light and views under the stairs, making the basement stairs inviting, and allowing for expansive sitelines.
The glass railing system takes full advantage of the bright atrium and view into the large yard beyond.
Even under the stairs, one has a good view into the yard.
From the front, the open stairs allow site lines right to the large glazed areas at the far end of the house. From the entrance one sees the size of the space, divided with wall sections that delineate areas without blocking that view. Beyond is the large light source and view of the garden at the glazing, which in clement weather opens to enjoy breeze and space.
