Petaluma Farm House
This updated farm house will feature a staircase unlike any other in the Bay Area. Designed to welcome guests to the heart of the house, this staircase, and its floating overhead walkway, will allow the owners to display their unique and rare collection of books upon the shelves of this towering 3-story bookcase. Heavy, thick and fully welded steel plates make up the floating steps and risers, which are then clad with hand-selected and hewn solid redwood treads. The elegant railing, with redwood handrail cap, floats above the staircase using custom hidden connectors designed and manufactured by Blank and Cables. The books will be illuminated using custom made light fixtures integrated into the shelves themselves.
