Floating Stairs

These floating stairs were created for Urban Homes inc Ltd based in Poole. They were installed in a pair or new developments on Allington Road, a stone’s throw away from the world renowned #sandbanks peninsular.

The timber was a black American Walnut which was fitted over cantilevered metal staircase treads. We crafted boxes that effectively slid over the metal sections protruding from the wall. Glass was then bolted to the metal treads to sit flush with the treads, and the fixing bolts were then encased with black walnut caps which gave the illusion of the steps protruding proud of the glasswork. Although a complicated design we think it was worth the effort! Hope you’ll agree that the finished article is quite stunning!

The project was completed with a week from start to finish.

Thanks go to Fineline Fabrications Ltd Poole who produced the metal framework to enable us to give it the magic walnut treatment!
