To design a glazed detail with a flawless finish, free from any visible fixings.

The Riley family had a strong preference for a staircase that concealed any visible fixings or functional details, prompting us to employ clever design and machining techniques. These techniques were instrumental in concealing the inner workings of the glass structure and creating the illusion of a floating half landing.


The Challenge

Floor to ceiling glazing complete with a helical handrail.

Our desire was for a full-width staircase within the opening, which led us to stack the lower and upper strings. This arrangement allowed us to seamlessly incorporate the glass balustrade on the same plane, granting us a clear and spacious 900mm width while achieving a sleek, open-plan look with embedded glazed balustrades.

Words from the client

"The curved handrail detail just finishes this staircase so smoothly. Every tiny detail was taken care of through a variety of drawings to make sure it was perfect. The fitters were lovely too. Tea no sugar x 2"
