Can these be done in a standard front step rectangular look?

Romani Landscape Architecture
Hi Alibressler - I think the answer would depend on the style of your home and the layout of the surrounding context. Here, the purpose of the round steps was to mimic the arch of the transom above the door as well as to give the entrance a welcoming/soft feel by having the steps protrude outwards with a soft radius. Had these been rectangular instead, I feel that it may not have had the same effect. It may have looked too "flat/cold/straight" with less character. Think about how the rounded steps kind of "come out towards you" as you walk in towards the doorway.

Hi Jross - Sorry but we did not build the house itself. In this picture: we designed and built the front entry court, radial stone steps, pillars, bluestone walk, bluestone landing, and lighting.

Hi toiqdo - the columns are 24"x24" and the stone coping on top overhangs 2" on each side so that makes it 26"x26" on top. The height, as measured from the second step to the top of the stone coping is 26".
