Make it Disappear
The Rakhra Residence sits right on the Rideau Canal and is filled with unique architectural features. Just look at that fascinating steel rod and bracket system that holds up the corner of the landing. When we first arrived there was a lot of stainless steel and the railing was wrought iron painted a cream colour. The latex paint that was used had yellowed and it simply didn’t reflect the openness that the home was built with. The owner had one request for the new railing; “Make it disappear.” So, we installed a very minimal oak handrail to match the stairs and filled in the rest with tempered glass panels. Sometimes less is more, and this railing fit the home like a glove.
