Evergreen Drive

This Marin County project was constructed on a fast-track schedule. Design decisions and construction had to occur jointly in order to maintain aggressive critical-path deadlines. In order to ensure milestones were met, subcontractors, deliveries, and inspections were closely managed with clear communications between architect, designer, owner, and contractor.

What is the upper area used for? How did these stairs pass inspections?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The ladder leads to a lounge and media center for the son. One of its rungs supports the desk. A lower portion of the desk swings out for more workspace. When it's no longer needed, the extension can tuck back under the upper portion (and become a great place to store a laptop or keyboard). Other rungs in the ladder were extended to create built-in bookshelves. The whole structure is made of steel to provide ample support while keeping the design minimal and open.
