When it comes to custom stairs and railings, AR2 Design Studios Inc. is a leader in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, and Maryland.

We create stunning architectural solutions in the residential and commercial space by using only the highest quality materials and latest fabrication techniques.

At AR2, we craft every project to meet each customer’s exact specifications. We understand the importance of precision and quality. That’s why we don’t use prefabricated kits on any of our residential or commercial stair and railing projects like some companies.

With kits, the pieces are typically made with the minimum thickness required making the final install feel cheap or not sturdy. Also, the convenience of ordering kits is replaced by inflexibility in being able to customize the materials to your exact specifications. This can create gaps, odd angles, and other flaws in the final stair or railing installation. Finally, kits usually rely on compression fittings, or screws, which may require adjusting or re-tightening in the future.

Our comprehensive metalwork package is designed to add value, both in terms of delivering a high-quality product on time, and at a fair price. We are committed to going above and beyond for our customers – never compromising quality standards and always respecting project deadlines.
