Bespoke Staircase – Kingston

 

‘Bespoke Staircase – Kingston’ was a recently completed model 500 staircase supplied to a private client.
What made this model fairly unique is that the customer embedded the zig zag wall stringer into the wall to create a cantilevered effect with the treads coming straight out of the wall!
Our client cut a notch in the existing wall, positioned and bolted the steel stringer in place and carefully plastered up to each tread. To avoid any of the plaster cracking, a small piece of ply was placed on the wall side of the tread before plastering. Once the plastering had been completed, this piece of ply was removed and the small gap was then filled with white silicon to allow a small amount of movement.
This bespoke staircase consisted of 60mm solid oak treads supported by a zig zag stainless steel stringer on the outer side. Above this were some brushed stainless steel newel posts which supported 10mm toughened glass panels. These were topped with a 50mm solid oak handrail. It was a total transformation from the original staircase and it opened up the entire hallway.
The model 500 bespoke staircase is a very versatile system available in a variety of timber, staircase configurations and finishes. Have a look at the links below to see some previous examples of this bespoke staircase.

Open Staircase

A picture of a stunning, modern and open staircase supplied to a property developer in Bath.

The staircase is our floating WF structure which only has a wall stringer.  With no stringer on the exposed side, an extremely open and light effect is achieve with the treads appearing to cantilever from the wall and float in mid air!  The WF open staircase is a very popular design for those looking to open up a hall way and allow the passage of light.

This particular model was constructed with Oak parquet timber, brushed stainless steel spindles to the stair and laminated glass panel on the landing.

This staircase was supplied a couple of years ago to a specialist property company in Wiltshire and we received the attached photo this week when they place another order for another WF open staircase.  Same specification only a mirror image.

The WF staircase is available as a straight flight, quarter turn (as featured) and a half turn flight and can be supplied in widths up to 1100mm.  As the timber is structural it can only be produced in hardwood with beech, oak, walnut and ash being the most popular.

Have a look at the links below for further examples of the stunning WF open staircase.

Modern Staircase – Before and After

A Modern Staircase was installed last week in Farnborough, Hampshire.

As part of a refurbishment, our client needed their current carpeted quarter turn staircase replaced with a stunning  modern staircase, offering light and space.

Instead of maintaining the existing square platform at the turn we introduced winding treads which saved a little space, created an nice angle to the stringers and actually increased the depth of the individual treads – making the flight easier to ascend.

The model 500 modern staircase was selected with steel laser cut stringer and solid oak treads.  The oak treads had an integrated downstand at the front to ensure it met building regulations.  Frameless glass balustrade was supplied down the internal side and this was topped with an oak handrail.

The final floor is to be laid in a couple of weeks and we will be back to take some finished pictures then.
