Over the years we’ve designed some truly beautiful staircases. These are a couple of favourites:
Coolmore House, Ireland
This classic staircase with plain rectangular treads rises over two floors and comprises straight flights between quarter landings.
One of the interesting aspects of this stair is that it appears to fly past the tall Georgian window with no apparent support. During the design phase, we undertook specialist testing of the stone to verify that the Portland limestone (Base Bed) achieved sufficient strength.
Robinson Staircase, Hampshire
This elegant geometric stone staircase with no supporting wall pushes the boundaries of staircase design in natural stone.
An absence of structural support available for the stair at the landing edge provided an interesting design challenge, ultimately giving the staircase the appearance of floating in the middle of the room.
