Design Challenge: The existing stairway was too close to the front door and steep. The client

wanted a lighter wood railing and a larger loft to act as a sitting room for the master suite.

Solution: The stairway up to the second floor was rebuilt and the loft was extended to allow for

additional loft floor space. The new stair design added a 90 degree turn toward the top to allow

a grander and more inviting entrance into the master suite off of the loft.
