“Salt Creek” Frameless Elevator Shaft and Glass Stairway
After being contacted by Architect, CJ Light, and GC, Andrew Williams, Giroux became an integral part of designing this award-winning “frameless” glass elevator shaft and stairwell at a beach-front property in Southern California. After extensive layout and planning, the Giroux in-house drafting department constructed a digital 3-D model of the entire area, which created the foundation upon which all components were ordered and fabricated.
Cantilevered Floating Stair,
Newport Beach, CA
The Giroux High-End Design and CAD teams collaborated closely to create designs, layouts and the final digital 3-D model prior to installation of this award-winning staircase (Most Innovative Interior Glass Project, Glass Magazine, 2011). Architect CJ Light’s client wanted a unique floating staircase to fit existing space constraints leading to his home’s wine cellar . The steel and structural components, stringer, and clamps were fabricated by P. Spillman, directly from the 3-D model shown here.
