Curved Oak and Glass Staircase
Project: Chipping Campden
The Barrett family were well underway with the huge renovation project in the quaint town of Chipping Campden when they contacted First Step Designs. The architect had planned a curved staircase that most companies said could not fit within the tight space and still look attractive. Here at First Step we push for the best and it was clear when we pulled of this masterpiece for the Barrett family.
Nathaniel worked hard with the client back and forth to ensure the perfect design, shape and sweep was acheived in the limited space. It became a real challenge to create the opening flare all the while keeping plenty of space from the left hand wall, but he pulled it off. The staircase is the real focal point of the property.
The fluid shape of the staircase allow the staircase to flow through the space. The white powder coated, steel 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. The curved toughened panels of glass really finish the staircase to make it look really inviting to take that closer look.
This staircase features 5 different radius’ in order to get the bespoke shape that was required, not an easy task. But where is the fun in something that is easy? Congratulations to the team on this beauty.
