Floating stairs and a dramatic cut-out banister let in the light.
A striking entryway lets the light in.
Here’s a bright idea: to let some warm southern light trickle into this northfacing North Shore entryway, designers Curtis Krahn and Kevin Li of Synthesis Design installed an opentread stairway with a custom laser-cut railing (designed by the homeowner) that allows light to flow through unobstructed to all three levels of the home. “We love southern exposure for the sun and its changing light qualities,” explains Krahn. “The movement of the sun’s path creates ever-changing, dynamic light patterns that flow from the walls and across the treads and the floor in the entryway.” All in all, a beautiful way to create a warm welcome.
