A modern, three-story staircase in blackened steel and warm, western maple. We built this stair for “Joie de Vivre”, a home built by Brian Schmidt Builder for the 2015 NW Natural Street of Dreams. The stair capitalizes on a strong modern industrial aesthetic: letting the natural beauty of the materials shine. All the handrail and treads are in western maple, handmade in our shop alongside the heavy steel structural components. Because of the unique time constraints of this home, all the components of the stair were designed, fabricated, and finished off-site. Through planning and coordination, we were able to come into the home and have the stair completely installed in under a month.
