Eldorado Stone
We don't know who is the maker of this exact stone, but Eldorado Stone offers a very similar stone profile called Oyster Cut Coarse Stone. Hope this can be of help!

If wood, than I'd tend to match but could be steel, too....

Can you describe how these stair treads were constructed? I don't see any end grain showing. - I am trying to build a similar stair case, but not sure how to get the clean look of these chunky stair treads. Most stair builders I talk to want to face glue the wood so that the edge grain is on the top/bottom of the stair tread, the face grain is on the long sides, and the end grain is facing out on the short sides of the tread. I'm not sure how this will look using white oak lumber.

Likely custom built. We can build treads like this as well, not sure where you are located. We have offices in the US and Canada, but just contract a local stair builder!

According to the architect..."A dry-laid limestone wall provides a stunning visual backdrop for the full rise of stair that is naturally illuminated via continuous span of skylights above."

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Architect's Toolbox: Wash the Wall With Sunlight
Natural light washing across the surface from top to bottom makes this stairway a place to be, not just a place to walk through. In fact, placing a window or skylight at the top of the stairs is one of the most enriching ways to bring natural light inside. Think about what's more enjoyable — a stair that is bathed in light or one that's closed in by walls.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to High Style for Real Life
Create a background. Our lives play out against the walls, floors, ceilings and other physical features of our homes. So design those features to enrich your life, letting you live the way you wish and allowing for the unexpected and meaningful.
7. Enjoy your new home. You've worked hard and spent more than a few dollars to create your new home, so enjoy it to the max. Revel in the way the light falls across a room and how it changes with the seasons. Find unexpected places to talk with family members. Discover how this place gives shape to your life and allows you to become the person you want to be. In the end you'll be amazed that your new house is so much more than the sum of just its three bedrooms, living room and so on. It's the place you get to call home and make uniquely yours.More: Tell a Story With Design for a More Meaningful Home
