Italian ModernContemporary Entry, Austin
What Houzz contributors are saying:
A full-size mockup of the stairway was built at the Chihuly Studio in Washington to ensure that the scale of the finished piece would be just right for the room.Jauregui's firm did all of the home's interior design and construction, which helped in coordinating the installation, from making sure that the roof and ceiling could support the sculpture (yes, there's a lot of steel framing up there) to ensuring that the owners' children couldn't reach out and grab the piece. The sculpture's location, in the stair hall just off the entry, was chosen for maximum impact. The piece fills the space with light and energy.
