Stairs in a Courtyard

In traditional architecture handrails (if they are found) are put against the wall leaving the outside of a staircase open to the air and everything else. While this would probably put the insurance companies in the US right over the edge, visually it is very pleasing.

Health and safety would have a fit in the UK too, but they do look very pretty like this.

I like the enlargement of this, really wonderful. I think handrails are overrated and are mostly for insurance companies.

Yes, really wonderful traditional architecture handrails. I like it.
