Diane and Jim Castanes set the table beneath a cover of sail cloth that shades the dining area in summer. The skylight, shown here open, is made of tempered glass and aluminum. It slides on an aluminum track to cover or reveal the staircase. Skylight and track, designed by Castanes, are made of off-the-shelf parts.
