Midvale’s well-designed and engineered railing system has since inspired award-winning, Bruns Architecture to specify AGS Stainless railing on a number of other projects
The overall vision was to create a house with a museum-like element, to achieve a harmonious blend of industrial architecture and nature. The impressive transformation from start to finish required close attention to aesthetics, engineering, materials and budget. When local fabrication was no longer an option for the interior and exterior railings, they selected the Rainier cable railing system from AGS Stainless, featuring a wooden handrail and custom-made stainless steel posts…this gave them the high-quality product they wanted – but within their budget.
“We really liked Rainier for its overall high-quality look that nicely accentuated the home’s horizontal aesthetic with its linear cabling lines,” explained Stephen Bruns, Principal of Bruns Architecture and lead architect on the project. “And there’s a certain delicacy when blending the thin, stainless steel cabling with the wooden hand railings that’s really quite nice – it melds the home’s overall industrial feel with the all-natural accents throughout in a very elegant and subtle way, not to mention how it’s well engineered as an easy-to-assemble system.”
