This home floats somewhere between modern and art deco.  The client loves exotic woods, and so the tropical hardwood purple heart was used extensively, from the handrail to the custom columns, to the fireplace mantles, even the chandelier panel uses this beautiful species with only a clear seal coat to allow the wood to speak for its self.  We also design and managed the installation of the class panels in lieu of wood or metal balusters, fully inset into the railing and skirts with no visible fasteners.

The staircase for the 360 house was an exercise in precision and planning. Designed by Boora Architects, and built by Green Gables Design and Restoration. We worked closely with the architect, builder, and other craftsmen on the project. The main piece of our work is a free-standing staircase in wood and steel with completely invisible fasteners. We collaborated heavily with Brian Creany of Flux Design to align the steel sub-structure perfectly to the wood components. The balustrade is FSC-certified Italian veneers topped with American rift-sawn white oak handrails CNC milled to a custom profile. The treads and risers were also in American rift-sawn white oak with no visible fasteners. We also sourced a huge slab in rift-sawn American White oak for a bench alongside the stair opening in the living room. The stair and benchtop feature a water-based eco-friendly clear coat.
