Staircase (Phase Two)

Phase two of the staircase turned out really well.  It took a couple of attempts and quite a bit of effort, but I am very happy with the results.

The architectural is designed to provide depth beneath the stairs while breathing life into what would otherwise prove to be a very dark area of the long hallway.
This is actually the second install. After I installed the first, I ended up destroying it.  I found myself explaining what I wanted it to be, and looking at something that wasn't really what I had in mind. I think it stays much more true to the intimate, organic nature of what I wanted, not really able to discern where one element stops and another begins.

Indirectly lit by 640 programmable LEDs, I can dial in virtually any color I wish.
The architectural itself was milled in three sections and finished by hand.  I also designed the rails to provide indirect lighting at just the right angle, without ever exposing the actual light source.  The lighting is controlled by 640 RGB LEDs with a controller that allows me to dial in virtually any of 16 million different colors.  White, Blues, and Yellows seem to show the best.  Depending on the holiday season, this should prove very entertaining.

Now all that's left is to fabricate and install the steps themselves...
