One of the earlier projects for our bespoke team was for the top floor of this impressive town property. The clients were completely renovating the house and approached us for a timber solution for their planned music room. Prime grade European oak was the main material of choice and to be used on the flooring and all associated joinery; including the staircase.
The client's architects Cresswell Cuttle & Dyke designed the staircase with a distinctive, modern steel spine which was to be painted white to tie in with the walls and periphery woodwork on the lower floors of the house. The rest was to be timber and we designed some accents in stainless steel which would be inlaid into the stair treads for additional grip and also into the newel posts and handrail in order to carry the look throughout.
The clients wanted the whole thing to be as tight and neat as possible and so particular attention was paid to the perimeter and any areas in which the flooring met the borders, staircase or other joinery. We used engineered timbers in conjunction with solid and are very proud of the detailing, particularly around the top of the staircase and where glass meets timber and steel.
