Project: Ambleside, Wendover
Client: Private client
Full commission for the design, fabrication and installation of a bespoke staircase for a contemporary private development in Wendover. The clients brief was for a straight flight staircase of contemporary design.
The project included a minimalistic staircase design with steel stringers, solid oak treads, glass balustrade and Avant Garde slotted handrail. The staircase comprises of three short flights with intermediate quarter landings to fit within the space provided. The staircase is accompanied by a structural glass balustrade to a large 1st floor landing.
The design objective of a minimalistic look was achieved by concealing all fixings. The inner stringer is a fully welded singular piece and the outer section is constructed from stringers bolted together. The glass is clamped to the outside of the stringers, with all fixing details hidden by steel cover panels, which are powder coated to match the primary steelwork. The glass is toughened float glass.
A 3D rendered model was created during the design process to present our design to the client as well as ensuring that the steel, glass and handrail components were accurately fabricated and installed first time round.
