"Crossing Boundaries . . . "
|From House & Garden's "Book of Style"|
Stairs. A simple mathematical balance between 'rise' and 'run.' But a mysterious architectural feature. The strict border between the public spaces - and the more private parts of the home. The formality of an entryway - giving way to quiet rooms meant for slumber. The stairwell offering slight glimpses of the unknown personal rooms. So they can serve as a barrier - but can also be an invitation. They're almost flirtatious.
