This project consisted seven interior stair flights and railing, with one exterior stair railing, along with a interior loft railing. Stairs are a series of two angle iron stringers, with each tread and riser mitred 45º at both ends and welded. Solid wood treads and risers. The stringers were fabricated in studio then bolted into place. The loft railing was fabricated in two sections in studio. The vertical posts were notched to rest on sub-floor and hang over the front of the loft header.The main section has glass infill with a removable top bar to allow glass installation. After installation of the main frame, metal plate was plug welded in front of header then sanded smooth to cover drywall and attachment bolts. The second section includes a solid flat bar frame with cable infill. All joints are tight, welds are simple and clean or hidden all together to create a piece of architectural furniture for this living space.(Click on thumbnails to enlarge)
