Stair of the Week: Clayton St House by Mork-Ulnes Design

A former hippie haven in Haight-Ashbury is renovated by Casper Mork-Ulnes, designer of the prefab Modern Cabana line.

The New York Times writes:

"Salvaged lumber was glued together to form the butcher-block treads of the parlor staircase; chips and nail holes were left exposed. The railing is made of shower-door glass and industrial hardware."
