Cat Mountain Residence transitional staircase
 

Cat Mountain Residence

Conceived as a remodel and addition, the final design iteration for this home is uniquely multifaceted. Structural considerations required a more extensive tear down, however the clients wanted the entire remodel design kept intact, essentially recreating much of the existing home. The overall floor plan design centers on maximizing the views, while extensive glazing is carefully placed to frame and enhance them. The residence opens up to the outdoor living and views from multiple spaces and visually connects interior spaces in the inner court. The client, who also specializes in residential interiors, had a vision of ‘transitional’ style for the home, marrying clean and contemporary elements with touches of antique charm. Energy efficient materials along with reclaimed architectural wood details were seamlessly integrated, adding sustainable design elements to this transitional design. The architect and client collaboration strived to achieve modern, clean spaces playfully interjecting rustic elements throughout the home.

Well this is an extremely old comment, but since it's unanswered... there is a gap between the steps & the wall where strip lighting has been inserted.
I love the look, but dust settling in the gap would drive me insane.

Our drawings indicate a lip however this is a remodel. Glynis Wood did the interiors in this home so she may know. You can contact her at glynisgwood@yahoo.com

my guess would be that the rise of the stair angles back by 1" from top to bottom
