Glass Box Stairs
For a design concepts project we were required to build a model of a staircase, with a focus on making the stairs feel like an experience rather than a mundane passage to the next floor. I decided to build an all glass staircase. The steps are designed to make people feel open and inspired as they walk through the space. The all glass feature allows for people to take in all of the views around them as they climb each level they will perceive their surroundings differently preventing boredom. The second and top levels offer two staircases along the walls allowing the stepper to choose their own way, furthering the sense of freedom. To some the space will feel too exposed, but for safety each flight is bookended by glass making it impossible to fall. There are three landings to grant a pause from the stairs and a view worth stopping to see. At night the entire outline of stairs will glow in the dark for safety and interest.
Single Story CAD Floor Plan
This single story ranch is designed to be a modern, suburban, living space. The home includes two bedrooms and two baths. There is a master suite and adjacently placed will be the guest bedroom. The home is perfect for a couple without kids, or for a family with only one child. Intended for an affordable simple living area, while still remaining spacious. Includes an ample sized porch located at the front entrance, and an open floor plan connecting the great room, dining room, and kitchen. Bedrooms are sectioned off from the living area, while rooms are strategically placed to where they will be most convenient.
