As Architects and Designers, we know how restrictions can impact a project. Sometimes these restrictions come in the form of budget limitations, while other times there are those troublesome building codes that have to be met. When faced with these challenges we take an opportunity to be creative and think a little outside the box.

Take railings for example. Staircases, porches and decks all have height requirements. But, this doesn’t mean that your railings have to be ordinary!Think of it as a chance to do something different.
