allowed an open riser of no more than 4" in height. The thickness of the treads served to minimize the open space.
I hope that's useful.
clangois1 -- you're welcome! I just love these open, floating style stairs. Especially love ones that are cantilevered from the wall. So cool!

in NYC, open riser stairs must have the riser space be less than 4". We often choose to achieve this by utilizing big chunky treads as we love the way they look. Hope that helps!
Love the open riser stair with glass wall
Open riser and glass wall instead of railing!
like the staircase - open and light
I like the open modern looking staircase.
open riser staircases really lighten the room and adds to the feel of spaciousness
