Whole House Green

Once narrow & dark, the Entry now welcomes you into a light-filled open floor plan. The glass stair railing allows light to bathe the entry and creates a welcoming sparkle. A comprehensive Feng-Shui analysis and recommendation was done in the beginning of the Design Process.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lisa Frederick added this to Home Styles: Split Personality
One of the things I can't wait to change in my own split-level is the dated wrought-iron railing that separates the middle and lower floors. I've been scratching my head over how to update it, and I love this approach. The glass panels preserve the same openness as the railing, but look sleek and sophisticated.
Maybe a more forgiving material, like a translucent glass, would be more appropriate for folks like me.

Great redo of the small entry! Once again, the best way to deal with the undersized entry on a split is to remove all the old, dated surfaces and add in light colors without too much pattern. Love the glass on the stairs to add light. Could be a cleaning problem with kids and dogs but it looks wonderful!

Combination of wood frame and translucent glass frames the stairwell. Glass panels have some textures (visual interest and allow light into stairwell space. Simple, clean expression of materials using glass and wood. I would reduce the scale of the supports to make horizontal and vertical framing more delicate.
