Project Description

2005 CHDA
Custom Detail / Merit Award

Architect Bernie Baker had more ambitious plans for this railing, envisioning it as "sort of the finial detail of the house," so he held off until the rest of the house was nearly complete to work out the design. Taking his inspiration from the exposed wood-and-steel framing that holds up the building's second floor, Baker composed a railing that sandwiches a framework of thin steel rods and plates between posts and caps of Douglas fir. Our judges approved of the result, calling it "interesting to the eye" and "a really well-crafted assembly." Said one, "I would want to grab onto that." One imagines that is exactly what Baker had in mind.
