Rethinking the stair railings for this contemporary Bethesda Home we used a blend of wooden elements; mahogany newels and top rails, combined with stainless steel ¾ inch rods and a steel cable at the top. The cable creates tension, pulling everything together, while the rods create compression which keeps the rail from collapsing or falling apart. Modern architecture is all about expressing the nature of materials while enjoying the cleanliness of line and the rigor of the details.
