    The wall panels are made of clear, rotary-brushed Lexan. They, along with the stair treads, are attached to a steel-tube frame.

    Tanks for the info. So if I look carefully the stairs are attached to the tubes? And the panels get installed after inside and outside of the stairs?

This stair combines solid and translucent in a playful way to highlight somebody in the middle of the flight connecting the floors.

WhimsyI’ll close with this image, which I find really delightful. Challenging conventional ideas about how to assemble buildings and their components, like a stair, is one of the most enjoyable aspects of architecture for me personally. How often have we moved through our homes without giving a second thought to how we do it? Your answer, I’m guessing, is “All of the time.” Engaging the senses in the simple act of climbing a set of stairs incites wonder and contemplation. The architect deliberately left the walls framing the stairs exposed to view through a carefully selected mosaic of translucent and solid panels. This simple gesture, integrated with the framing members, adds dimension, connects spaces, permits light and can’t help but make you smile.More: Design Workshop: Just a Sliver (of Window), Please
