The Chase – Bespoke Staircase Design

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.

Key Features

– Double curved stairs in double height entrance foyer

"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." 

-Simon & Sharon Moss, Nottingham
