250 Cumberland Street : San Francisco Staircase

Written by Scott Couture on . Posted in Couture Architecture Blog

This recently completed staircase and wall-mounted kitchen shelves was added into newly remodeled home in San Francisco. To create a light & bright sculptural statement while allowing sunlight to penetrate down the four flights of stairs we used white painted, 1/4″ thick, steel plates for the treads and pickets then embellished the steps and handrail with a rich wood finish. The steel origami structure ribbons its way up the 4-story staircase keeping the stairwell light and bright and adding a sculptural centerpiece at each level.

Designed by Couture Architecture and meticulously fabricated by Wyatt Studio – note the incredible fabrication of the balanced angle railing cap.
