Beautiful design. What is the width of the walkway on the second floor? Thank you.
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Thankyou, the overall width of the catwalk was 36 inches, cabinet depth of 12 inches leaving 24 inch clearance, tight but not for putting on a show. I didnt want the circular staircase eating up the living space.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Perhaps the most genius move in the house was busting through the ceiling to create a dramatic two-story library. "The library was originally two separate floors, with the upper level housing two guest bedrooms," Mark says. "Because the client is a successful writer in Hollywood, I wanted to give him a unique library that became the heart of the home, flooded with natural light and dramatic lighting from the chandelier and the sconces for the evening."

OOoh, I just love this one. It feels like the chancel of a cathedral. Love the contrast, and the curtains.

I am an huge fan of circular staircases and humongous home libraries. This room uses both of those aspects beautifully! I love the fact that you can see the entire library from the ground level but you have to climb up the stairs to get to half of it.
