Full commission for the design, fabrication and installation of a bespoke floating staircase for a stylish penthouse. The clients/achitects brief was to design the staircase around the exisiting steelwork to juxtapose the contemporary and industrial aesthetic
This floating staircase was installed on the sixth floor penthouse overlooking farringdon trainstation. Which required applying to Camden council to close the road and lift all the glass by crane.
The glass panels generally weighed approximately 200-300 KG these were installed using a vacuum lift.
Attached to a 500KG Genie lift which allowed us to move around in a tight spaces to avoid other contractors working near by.
The design was made difficult by certain pieces of structural steelwork intersecting the glass panels.
The treads were 100mm thick grade 1 english oak attached throughthe glass panels using glass adapters.
