Millwork Monday Series – Stairway to Heaven

Stairway to Heaven
The shaded sconces and paneled walls of the circular stair rotunda were precisely planned to align with the cascading windows that follow you when ascending the stairs and afford a glimpse of the ever changing view from each vantage point. An inlaid stone compass rose is the center-point of the rotunda floor and is set to true North to the satisfaction of the owner who is an avid sailor. The rotunda is crowned with a domed ceiling with center cupola that washes the interior with daylight and serves as a welcoming beacon to guests arriving to the home from the west.
