Curved Oak & Glass Staircase
Project: Beech Farm
The Gratton family were well underway with the build of their new project when they contacted First Step Designs. They had disagreed with both the builder and architect about what staircase they wanted to suit their home, so they contacted a staircase specialist to save the day.
Adam and Tom at First Step visited site with a few ideas and came up with a concept of a sweeping, curved staircase that would become the focal point of the home. Originally the feature entrance gallery featured a 12 seat dining table, Mrs Gratton’s exact words following the design were “I want this area empty, just that staircase on its own!”
The fluid shape of the staircase allow the staircase to flow through the space, not causing an obstruction for movement or the stunning views of the Welsh valleys. The white powder coated strings match the walls and allow the oak treads to be appear floating, opening up the space and allowing all the natural light to flood throughout the home.
