Metal, Oak and Glass Curved Staircase
Project: Crewe Road
A new build project with all the potential in the world approached First Step Designs with an incomplete design. The entrance hallway needed a showpiece to allow the project to achieve its market value in the sale. A new build of this caliber is expected to have one of a kind features, we took over from the architect and did just that.
Our team designed a staircase to make a statement in this property and assisted the structural engineers to create a landing structure capable to withstand the structure of a curved staircase. The architect had made a few errors, we always encourage our clients to get in touch ASAP so the build can be prepped to take the staircase that you desire.
We designed the tightest curve possible to fit the space, ensuring that our toughened glass could be rolled to the correct radius without fracturing. Specifying a footprint away from underfloor heating systems to allow the staircase to be chemically anchored to ensure no movement. Submitting loads of the staircase for the landing steelwork and joist layout for the optimum sweep.
The elegant curve of the staircase allows light to flow through the property ensuring the open plan living space is not interrupted or hinders those nights of entertaining guests. All steel components were powder coated to match the windows, a natural oak contrast to compliment the flooring and continuous rails for an added element of safety and luxury. Another flawless construction from the First Step Designs team.
