Union Square Apartment modern-staircase

Union Square Apartment

the stair was moved from the front of the loft to the living room to make room for a new nursery upstairs. the stair has oak treads with glass and blackened steel rails. the top three treads of the stair cantilever over the wall. the wall separating the kitchen from the living room was removed creating an open kitchen. the apartment has beautiful exposed cast iron columns original to the buildings 19th century structure.

What is approximate cost of railing? Is it glass or plexiglass?

this rail is blackened steel and glass- it was part of a much larger steel fabrication project so i am not sure how the pricing broke down...if i had to guess i would say roughly 6k
