New York City is the ideal location for renovation and restoration jobs with the dream of creating that downtown oasis. This one particular client purchased this loft apartment facing Bryant Park, in a building dating to the early 1900′s. NYC Registered Architect Hal Dorfman designed the space, and contacted Bella Stairs to provide a custom set of straight stairs to fit the needs of the client.
This New York City loft straight stairs project had a material list of european maple treads, stainless steel stringers, and stainless steel railing on the staircase and custom landing. The main staircase uses rectangular and winder treads in order to provide a comfortable, yet efficient configuration for this Bryant Park Loft. The custom landing was to be the connecting element between the master bedroom and home gym’s secondary staircases on the 2nd level.
The local New York City Building Code allowed for open treads on this staircase. It is crucial to verify and abide to the local building code regulations prior to the construction and fabrication of any stair project. There are ratios, equations, and standard dimensions which must be met prior to permit approval.
After staining the new maple floors to match the european maple treads on the staircase, the apartment’s transformation was complete.
The softness of the european maple treads compliments the brushed stainless steel stringers and horizontal railing. The exposed brick work that is original to the building was maintained, and also adds a nice decorative contrast of materials.
