    Very nice, if you can email me a side photo to, I would appreciate it. Working on a stair design for my personal residence...

    do the stairs treads over lap each other? so there's a nosing or are they in line vertically front to back? and how are they attached to the steal stringer?

    They is the rest of the house. Well done.

    Could you elaborate on any stain conditioner, brand of ebony stain, and sealer that was used? It really looks great! Thanks!

    These do not meet the IRC building code that is used in the vast majority of municipalities. You need to have a railing on the open side plus a handrail on at least one side (which can be the railing).

There is a view of books as one ascends the open-riser staircase.See more of this library

John Hill added this to 12 Singular Architectural InteriorsMar 18, 2012

As the last few examples show, stairs are an effective place to make transitions between spaces or between material palettes. This stair appears to curl around the wall that supports it on the right, but it's the window straight ahead that makes it so appealing. Forced movement through a house — stairs, corridors and so on — offers opportunities for leading the eye and framing views.

Lawrence Karol added this to Houzz Tour: Motley to Modern in the Hollywood HillsMar 14, 2012

Another reason for relocating the home's staircase was to create better access to the backyard. As you turn to the right at the landing, another set of stairs leads up to the second floor. "The owners really wanted superclean detailing," notes Griffin of the simple, open stair treads.
