St Georges Hill – Bespoke Staircase Design

About the project

My commission was to help complete the construction package information and design a bespoke three-level spiral staircase as the main feature element for the entrance hall to this house.

The floor openings to fit the stairs through had already been cast in concrete. So it was a case of careful measurements and lots of inspiration to create stairs that gave a real WOW factor and fitted into the space I was given.

The design concept was to create a stairs that floated from level to level with little visual support or weight. To achieve this, we created a lightweight spiral staircase that was supported by the floor slabs without any central support. The use of glass balustrades gives the stairs a transparency that allows the volume of the entrance hall to be retained while creating a beautifully curved feature.

Key Features

– Three level spiral staircase

– Floats level to level with little visual support

"My wife and I had some vague ideas of what we wanted, however, the expertise, creativity, and knowledge provided by John Morris have transformed our brief into the vision of a dream home." 

- Richard Mitchell, Ealing

" It was the first time that we have used an architect and we found that the use of John's services was paid back both in terms of the savings that he was able to identify through excellent contacts and helpful advice as well as the added value for the house. It also helped us avoid making expensive mistakes through a piecemeal approach." 

- Martin & Lyndsey Done, Gunthorpe

"John Morris Architects was one of three architects we found on the internet. After a couple of meetings with each of them and John's initial concept design, we found it very easy to make our choice. I would recommend John Morris architects to anybody and would love to work with John on another job in the future."
