Code Red: Glass at Stairs

The floating U-shaped glass stair is a first for us, and this week, the largest glass panels have been installed.  They span the height of one story, and encase the stair in what looks like a jewel box.   DSC01288-sq DSC01285Below is a detail of the custom powder coated standoffs by AMPG

And one of our favorite spaces is 99% done!  The secluded exterior balcony off the master bedroom.

Code Red: Cool Stairs

In the last few weeks, they have been diligently working on a lot of the small details throughout the house, namely, painting, reveals, lights, outlets and other miscellaneous hardware.  Below are a couple of really cool shots of the stairs taken from the ground floor.  The blue masking tape is used to protect each of the AMPG custom standoffs.  As soon as all the detailing is completed in and around the stairs, we will be able to install the glass.

Code Red: Finishes, Plumbing and Details

Let’s start this post with one of our favorite spaced: the dining room.  There is a double height space with a large skylight on top that creates a luminous glow to an otherwise dim corner of the house.

DSC01188The Easy Incline vanity with Dorn Bracht Lulu fixtures, probably our favorite combination.  This is a custom designed sink that we fabricate using Caesarstone.  Here, shown in Pure White.

DSC01185DSC01170While we are in the kitchen, some of the terrazzo has been revealed, it is so beautiful!  The stainless steel toe kick on the cabinetry will really set it off. And below, one of the guest bathrooms is nearly done.  We love the Royal Mosa wall tile.  And here we used Axor bath fixtures.DSC01168Below: the elevated decks are being installed.  We used custom concrete tiles by the Concrete Collaborative.  They have been one of our long time partners.  The tiles are supported on pedestals by Bison
