West Seattle Skybox Addition

Slot views of the boats and ships on Puget Sound great you on your decent from the Skybox to the main level. The main benefit, however, is the flood of light from above down to the kitchen and dining room, which previously suffered from extreme contrast of the bright outdoors and dark interior. Light even penetrates down to the basement via a translucent stair landing.

Thanks John. I'd need to look back in my specs for the handrail clear coat. The landing in the stairway is 2" solid acrylic, a remnant piece from 3Form - Chroma "Valley Mist". It's supported by a wall connection steel angle and the wood beam seen in the photo. The railing has one support thru-bolted to the landing. The transparency allows light down into the basement. Plus, it's fun and just plain cool.
