Stair Design Photo of the Month- Modern Open Riser Staircase

Thank you to all who participated in our latest stair design photo of the month competition. For the second month in a row, the winning staircase comes from the state of Virginia. This breathtaking project is a modern open riser staircase designed and constructed for a residence in McLean, Virginia.

Open Rise Stairs

This project was a collaborative effort between our DC and national team. First, the staircase was sold by Michael Brown and Ken Hoffman out of the DC office. Then, Scott Kittle began designing the one-of-a-kind staircase, working with the homeowner and other critical team members to design the open riser staircase. Then, the open riser stairs were built by the Charlotte manufacturing team. To finish, the stairs were installed by Jose Diaz, Autoro Navarrete, and the local DC team, and the railings were installed by Vitor Estanqueiro.
