We worked with architect Vibeke Lichten to design a unique patio railing and an offset cantilever stringer stair for this concrete home in Shelter Island, NY. Known as the Eco House it was designed with the environment in mind. One of the goals of the home construction was to leave a minimal carbon footprint. Because the client wanted to maintain the stunning views of the Peconic River from their patio Keuka Studios custom-designed the cable railing with this is mind. The railing complements the home’s architectural style and has a custom color to match the home exterior accents. Leading from the pool courtyard area to the lower level driveway we made a steel mono-stringer staircase. This offset mono stringer stair has stone treads and leads from the lower-level driveway to the upper-level pool house and pool patio.
