glass stair < glass balustrade  |  imperial staircase >  

Modern glass techniques allow traditional building materials to be abandoned: in particular a stairwell will greatly benefit by having glass balustrades, or glass treads. The stairwell in a house may have a skylight in the roof from which light shines through the stairwell down to an otherwise dingy hallway.
