About the project
At the heart of this new house which I designed, I also designed a curved double staircase to create the grand double height entrance foyer my Clients wanted.
The concept for the stairs design was inspired by the more traditional sweeping stairs found in manor houses and stately homes of older days. I reinterpreted this with modern materials, fully detailing and specifying every element of the stairs. I sourced a fabricator and then over saw the fabrication and installation of the stairs.
By using steel supports hidden within the oak treads, the stairs is cantilevered out from the side wall with no other support. This makes the stairs appear to float up along the side walls. The careful attention to detail with the glazed panels, bolts, oak and stainless steel cover plates brings a simple elegance to beautiful stairs.
