Louise Rigg was an interior designer by trade but she was also responsible for designing and building at least 13 homes in collaboration with local architects. Her trademark was a suspended stairway which was usually hung from the ceiling by cables but sometimes was only attached to a wall on one side with no other means of support. Her innate ability to create memorable spaces is apparent in all of her homes but this particular example is especially well preserved allowing a rare peek at her work as it was originally intended.
