Our client purchased a partially completed barn conversion and commissioned us to complete essential works.
 
The existing staircase was poorly constructed and not fit for purpose. 
The client’s brief was for us to design a contemporary centre-piece that would better reflect their style and make the most of the two-storey vaulted hall area. 
Our design focussed around the idea of a ‘floating’ staircase, with Oak steps structurally supported to the wall and glass balustrades. This involved a high level of pre-installation work which included inserting a steel ‘ladder’ into the wall to support the steps. Life-size modelling was completed using MDF templates to ensure the design worked, before the steps and 12mm toughened glass panels were made and installed.
 
The end result was a great success and has led to numerous additional projects. 

Existing staircase was poorly installed and unsafe

Staircase modelling was carried out using MDF templating

Finished staircase is structurally secured to the wall and glass balustrades

The new staircase is now the centrepiece of the entrance hall

90º kite turn allowed the staircase to work in what was a confined area
