You want your staircase to be the stand out feature of your home and the right stairs can transform any interior space. Whether it’s a straight forward design or more complex in nature there are other elements to be taken into consideration such as the space available, structural requirements on adjoining walls and maximising natural light.
In this particular project the client wanted to make a “big entrance” in a relatively narrow space. By working closely with the client our team of experts were able to provide a total solution from survey, through structural design, fabrication and & installation.
All our cantilever stair designs are tailored for each individual project. This custom designed cantilever features 14 steps / 15 rises with the structural support hidden within the confines of the walls resulting in the elegant, open, floating step effect.
The open rise steps & glass balustrade allow natural light from above to be channelled through the home giving the illusion of depth & space. To make the stairs as easy as possible and safe to walk on we have maximised the going and reduced the rise (something which should always be done where possible).
Natural lighting is further enhanced with the use of a glass floor at the return landing which also makes the most of the natural light source via the window from behind. Using a solid landing here would have visually shortened the space so by utilizing a glass floor the design accentuates the perception of depth.
