Spine Staircase with Feature Landings

Project: Foxdales

The Hancock family  took their early 1900’s property back to brick to truly make it their own, this involved a complete reconfiguration of the ground floor, opening a huge entrance hallway set for a show stopping staircase. Old properties have so much character and we love it. All of our staircases are custom designed and made to measure so we embrace this character with a flawless design. There is no need to compromise.

Our flawless spine structure is one of our most complex designs in terms of design and manufacture, but the simplest to install! The structure is not simply box section steel, but laser cut steel, fabricated to perfection so not one visible weld can be seen. A true First Step Designs original, available nowhere else on the market. These structures can be finished to any powder coat that you are looking for, we just need a simple RAL colour confirmation.

The key element of this staircase was to ensure that the staircase split between the entrance hallway and the lounge area. We embraced this characteristic and featured two huge landings to bridge the gap. Creating a welcoming opening to the staircase with solid 110mm European White Oak treads set to the perfect position for a seamless transition between the staircase and lounge. This area was designed as a closed plan section to ensure no dust traps were created. In order to compliment the rest of the staircase, the vertical riser sections between these treads were powder coated to the same finish as the central spine.

As the two finishing touches, the Hancock family chose to hide the glass fixings with end grain caps to make the glass appear like it is floating inside the treads. Not simply capped with thin timber to save costs, we offer true luxury! Finally a square contrast handrail was used to compliment the colour of the spine. A very popular RAL 7016 (anthracite grey) stain was applied as the finishing touch to this modern masterpiece.
