Gough Street Ladder modern-staircase

Gough Street Ladder

This remodel of a two-unit Victorian in the client's family for years was approached with both care and vigor. The project brief was to expand the upper unit into the attic, adding views of the Golden Gate bridge. The facade was meticulously refurbished. The essential logic of discrete Victorian rooms, retained but reimagined, becomes progressively more modern higher in the building. Materials include a custom lightweight concrete sink and soaking tub, Calacatta marble, mahogany cabinets and stainless steel railings.

You would only need a dimensional sketch of what you want. Then you could give that sketch to an engineer to design and draft the product. The engineer could then find a fab shop to make the ladder and do the finish work. If you are interested in making your own custom ladder, I am an engineer. I have been doing small projects for clients as a side job for years now. I would be happy to take your idea and make it a reality for you. If you would like to keep your idea confidential than we could draw up a nondisclosure agreement. If you think you may be serious please feel free to email me ( and I would be happy to contact you and discuss your project. Throwing out a rough estimate, you could probably do that ladder for $1800 depending on materials.
