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.

stair lip - hi,
I noticed there is no lip on each
stair tread.

i live in CT and from local stair guys tell me that there has to be at least 1" lip on each stair tread?

Is the code different down their, or should i investigate it more in my area?

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

This is a metal and diagonal cable system. you would still have you stringer so thick metal uprights on the ends would be mounted to that with the cables above. A much more contemporary look that the all metal uprights. Wood floors look similar to one you selected.
