Metro Mountain Contemporary Stairway

Goals and Vision: Draw attention to the bottom and to plot the stairway, allowing the middle landing to exist in harmony with the upper and lower parts. Move far from oversized members to sleek clean pieces, working together without any one piece calling for undue attention. Reducing the mass of each stair with a stepped tapered tread set into double stringers.

Specific challenges: Overcome the first glance being the underside of the upper stringer and stairs, generally the least appealing view had to become a satisfying and pleasant view.
