Bowman Stairs

The driving impetus for this Tarrytown residence was centered around creating a green and sustainable home. The owner-Architect collaboration was unique for this project in that the client was also the builder with a keen desire to incorporate LEED-centric principles to the design process. The original home on the lot was deconstructed piece by piece, with 95% of the materials either reused or reclaimed. The home is designed around the existing trees with the challenge of expanding the views, yet creating privacy from the street. The plan pivots around a central open living core that opens to the more private south corner of the lot. The glazing is maximized but restrained to control heat gain. The residence incorporates numerous features like a 5,000-gallon rainwater collection system, shading features, energy-efficient systems, spray-foam insulation and a material palette that helped the project achieve a five-star rating with the Austin Energy Green Building program.

Can you tell me what kind of floor this is? Please? - I am searching for a flooring which will work in my basement. Something which will be durable enough to handle some kid's bike riding! This floor looks awesome! I sincerely hope I get a response!

How is the baseboard trim constructed? - It looks like there's wood that sits flush with the drywall and something breaking the space between? Is there a closeup anywhere?

unfortunately the pictures on here are what we have, but you are correct in that the two materials are flush but there is a small (~3/8") reveal between the two creating the look.

our drawings show them as 2" however they are thicker than that. I'd say 3-4" is more likely. Hope that helps!
