Majer Metal Works: Lutherville Stair and Fireplace Panels

Stair: A cantilevered stair supported by hidden structural steel in a masonry wall supports 17 walnut treads to create a floating appearance. Each tread has a LED light fixture to help illuminate the path down. A 1/2” thick tempered low-iron glass guard rail is fastened to the end of each tread with a solid chuck of walnut capping each set of fasteners to hide the connections.

Fireplace Panels: Panels and firewood boxes were fabricated from 11 gauge weathering steel, aged outdoors for months and carefully fit to each masonry opening. All parts are held in place with concealed fasteners, and one panel hides a sliding screen from hot rolled steel, hung from bronze hardware.

Designed by Ziger/Snead. Fabrication and installation by Majer Metal Works.

Working with Jiho is a unique experience. He is an extremely engaged photographer and he works very hard to capture the most compelling images that a particular subject might provide. He doesn’t hold back, but he is also very particular, and the result is images with both quality and dynamism. His work ethic is impressive and his care in treating people never falters. In addition to shooting images of work going on in our studio, he has taken images of completed work both after and during installation. In all circumstances he has successfully engaged the people in the environment, making the process of shooting a difficult object in a busy place a special event rather than an imposition, and the results are visible in the quality of his work.

I would recommend Jiho for any project-his attention to the subject is just as careful when shooting a person, an inanimate object, even a pile of tools in a messy studio, and his kind-directness makes working with him so easy.
