A staircase solution idyllic for a fashionable business or modern living space.

Square nosing to the Walnut treads and the square profiled matching handrail gives a modern and classy edge to this luxury costal property.
Maximum creativity and design skills were required for this staircase simply because of the limited space available in this London town house. Laminated glass was used insted of the preferred toughened glass because of the tight diameters required. Stainless steel handrails were insisted upon so the workmanship of these tight diameters must be admired. Our preferred handrail would have been a hand carved timber that fits over the top of the glass. This would disguise some of the discrepancies associated with radiused glass as discrepancies like this are unavoidable with such small radii. The Zebrano wood treads, glass balustrade and stainless steel create a splendid and eye catching feature in a fine property.

This is a variation on the South lodge design. The glass has a straight bottom edge rather than the glass cut to the ZigZag shape of the stair strings.
