Case Study #49575: Custom Stair + Bridge
Client: O’Neil Properties Group
Design: Agoos Lovera Architects
Location: Private Residence- Malvern, PA
Influenced by the exposed steel structure in the home, this feature stair and bridge was constructed from a combination of fabricated and standard structural steel members. However, to both lighten and elevate the design, 1-3/8” thick custom cast glass panels with integrated LED lights were used for each tread, landing and bridge panel. The integration of the LED lighting added considerable complexity, as the stringers were engineered and fabricated as accessible wire chases for each individual LED run.
After fabrication, Amuneal’s in-house team hand-applied a blackened and burnished patina to all of the steel members and handrails. This finish added an artisan sensibility and helped to set the stair off from the heavier structural steel around it.
