Deep Eddy Residence

Warm materials like a steel countertop balance the modern form of the building.

This photo has one question

RemodelWest wrote:
Steel countertops - We are a design build form in Norther CA and spotted this steel countertop. Is this practical? Will the material rust? It appears it may have a finish on it. Would appreciate any insight.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This wall of cabinetry makes an implied connection between the main level and the mezzanine level because the same material was used on both levels. Even though the walkway separates the two visually, the implied connection remains strong. These tricks can work in a variety of circumstances where one wants to suggest visual connections but the spaces are physically disconnected.

One can see from this vantage point just how cleverly the architect has concealed an enviable amount of storage beneath this stair. The stair stringers, the sloping wood framing supporting the stair, are set back from the face of the cabinet doors. This allows the cabinet doors to follow the rectangular sawtoothed profile of the treads and risers and not the angular underside of the stringer. When the doors are closed, they form an understated patchwork on the face of the wall and complement the architecture of the room.
