Banker Wire P-286 Brass woven wire mesh used in a space dividing stairwell

A compartmentalized 1960s home was overdue for an update, and the team from Model Remodel got to designing the flow of the kitchen and main floor. The homeowners received a modernized kitchen, additional storage, and a repositioned basement stairway that is now a beautiful architectural feature. During discussions about traffic flow, it was determined that moving the stairs to the basement was a goal. This repositioning would make for easier access to the basement from anywhere on the first floor and make the living space feel bigger.

The Banker Wire P-286 pattern in a bare brass material was paired with the custom walnut stairway for continuity. The stairway is now both an architectural feature and a custom shelving unit. Leaving the brass metal mesh bare will allow this metal to tarnish with age. The brass woven wire mesh now adds to the open concept of the room while also reflecting natural light coming through the windows.
