Conveyance.  Rhythm.  Elevation change.  The vertical experience of space.  These requirements, and the trust of our clients have inspired Foster Associates to explore the poetic expression of the stair.  Though, functionally, the stair must move a person from one level to another, we believe the stair demands more attention to its effect on the experience of transition.  Function, material, and craft come together sculpting form, controlling scale and speed, while dispersing light throughout the surrounding spaces.


Furniture commissions provide our clients another level of authorship within their projects.  Including both freestanding furniture and integrated cabinetry, we have developed unique solutions in collaboration with our clients.  With their help, we attempt to solve problems personally, with attention to craft, in order to create a piece that is beautiful beyond its function.
