Are you looking for that unique piece of timeless art for your home? A curved staircase is vital to augment the quality of your house. Adding some curved sections to your staircase is what takes it beyond the purely functional necessity to bridge height differences. This curved staircase can have smooth transitions where the staircase turns or it can have a splay at the start to create a more welcoming entrance.

The combination of solid French Oak with black painted plain steel spindles is a good way to go in both traditional and contemporary interiors.  Take a look at this project we've done in Guildford.

We convinced our Clients that they did not need an in situ cast concrete stair flight to achieve their dream staircase.  We brought in this solid French Oak fully curved and free standing staircase instead. The wrought iron spindles have an old bronze finish for maximum 'wow' effect.

We're very proud to share these pictures of a recently completed project where we designed and installed a helical staircase spiralling over 540° (!). It's one of the eye catchers in the major renovation of a Belgravia townhouse. At the same time it's a school example of how we use the glue lam principle to create helical, freestanding staircases.  We worked closely together with Schneider Architects, who designed the house, and Coniston Ltd. who was the main contractor.

For this contemporary mansion we have designed a challenge for ourselves. The staircase spanning over 4 floors has a continuous handrail and stringer with large curved sections in the turns. All the glass was pre-made and fitted at the same time as the staircase flights, including the laminated curved panels. This process, with no templating of the glass needed after installation and which we have refined over many years, leads to a far greater efficiency in the crucial and time sensitive…

These pictures speak for themselves... The epitome of understated luxury. Serene and grand at the same time.  The Walton-on-Thames staircase really is a one of a kind staircase, where we used solid French Oak panels for the balustrade. It curves beautifully in every turn and makes a grand sweep at the start.

We recently installed these two toned staircases in a lovely Camden home. They both have a fully curved stringer and handrail on the balustade side, which really makes them an eyecatcher when you step into the building. The wrought iron balustrade is a combination of the 'Dieppe' spindle and the 'Nantes' spindle.

For this recent project in Ascot we used solid Beech for the stringers, solid French Oak for the handrail and solid Birch Plywood for the lightweight hybrid construction suitable for marble cladding. The marble was done by the Client and matches the floor. The balustrade is a combination of our 'Le Mans' spindle and 'Belfort' spindle. The staircase has a 'monkey tail' starting post and a completely continuous balustrade and handrail without intermediate posts. Click to see more pictures!
