Laboring over every material and line, this project is the result of rigorous design and planning with the clients. With a constant requirement for precision, the joinery and timing of materials throughout the home create clean, harmonic spaces that carry one throughout the home. Celebrating a truth in materials, white walls highlight the wide variety of finishes including clear timber, sandstone, marble, cork, concrete, and steel.
Thanks to the crisp neutral shade, the staircase carries light from floor to floor.
The stair features custom installations by lighting designer Johanna Grawunder. When turned off, the panels appear as mirrors; when on, reflecting LED lights, giving the twisted stair forms an exaggerated “funhouse-like” effect.

The steel stair treads delicately land atop a white brick base. A brass handrail completes the circulation.
Siegal chose a diagrid structure for the factory-built steel modules; polycarbonate panels create a luminous space beneath the stairs.
In staircase, large spans of glazing frame views to the slopes beyond.  Wood Stair treads and a steel guardrail modernize the circulation space.  A George Nelson bench sits below the window, decorated by a Ohio Design Blocky.
Paper lanterns from IKEA illuminate the lofted level. The structures, connected by sheltered walkways, frame a grassy courtyard. “Compositionally, I was trying to create bookends to the clubhouse.” Wells says. “I looked at all the parts in assembly.”

Whether grand and sweeping, rendered in wood, or a minimalist arrangment of metal and glass, the modern staircase is an example of literally elevated design. With its strong, geometric shape and functional importance, a masterful staircase can serve as the centerpiece of a building. Below are some notable examples of staircases that refuse to be ignored, and the creative tread and railing decisions that comprise them.
