IwamotoScott Architecture designed a modern house in the Noe Valley neighborhood of San Francisco, where they integrated into the design of the stairs a strip of minimalist lighting.
During the day, the wood stairs receive natural light that filters down from a skylight above.
At night, a strip of lighting follows the line of the stairs and the handrail, making it easier to see when climbing the stairs.
The strip of lighting also has a seamless design as it’s built into the wall.
