Hill Top Cottage , Sydney
The stair is the lightwell in the centre of the house, leading to generous openable skylights. The stair balustrade, constructed in perforated steel, allows the light to tumble down, even the upper stair flights are constructed in perforated steel, the layering of the semi-transparent steel sheets create a moire effect.

What Houzz contributors are saying:
How to Use Perforated MetalStair balustrades. Perforated metal can be used for stair balustrades that are floor-to-ceiling, or used as a handrail. This home has a staircase in the center of the house, and the perforated metal balustrades physically enclose the space without visually enclosing it. The staircase also cascades down from a skylight, so the perforations allow the natural light to radiate to the lower level.
