Staircases make up the main traffic ways around, up and down the 5×4 building, and with that comes necessary safety precautions. This generally means installing bulky balustrades to keep people slipping off the edges, however within our tight space this would have reduced the sense of space between floors within the building.
The solution? Glass Balustrades.
These are made with heavy-duty glass, and attached around the stairs.
The tiny bathroom space needed doors that could screen the area, but then melt into the walls when they needed to be open. This has resulted in a frosted sliding door, a swinging glass door that sections off the basin from the shower, and a swinging window behind the basin that can open the space to the rest of the house.
These large glass screens have been used as doors to the rooftop deck, and as inside walls in the bedroom.
