Delicately detailed and beautifully handcrafted, the Captiva model home’s dramatic curved staircase gracefully blends wood and iron with grand sweeping curves and free-flowing architecture. A one-of-a-kind, spare-no-expense design, this elegant stairway is further accented by a custom-made iron and hand-blown glass light fixture and sconces.
The team’s biggest challenge when designing and building this custom project was having to rebuild the entire staircase to fit the “flow and curve” from the main level to the lower level. They solved this issue by rebuilding the space twice to get the perfect location and curve for the staircase and stairwell. The stairs needed to land and enter into the lower level between the family room and the bar for the ideal walkway.
They also had to figure out how to match the curve of the staircase with a custom iron rail pattern that matches the style of the home. To further accent the style, they finished the stairs with wood end caps and beautiful sculptured carpet that connects the upper and lower floors.

A true labor of love. The clients had been planning this home on private property for seven years when the design team was brought onboard. Taking their time to get the vision and budget right, they wanted to create a modern home that was not sterile and felt like a family home.
