Just inside the front door is a show-stopping staircase, floating before a stacked stone wall that echoes the exterior chimney and foundation. The 4-inch-thick stair treads, as well as the railings, are made of reclaimed teak from 100-year-old pole buildings in Southeast Asia. Curved bronze balusters, designed by Tsiang to look like tree branches, add a metallic contrast without looking industrial.
With its open setup, the custom stairway becomes a kind of atrium, filling the home with light. The stained white-oak floors here and elsewhere were installed by Voda Constructions Corp., and the steelwork was crafted by D&J Custom Metal Fabrication.
