An oaken floor and floating staircase with oaken treads, above a natural stone floor and wooden plinths.

Helical Floating Stair

Having already installed and delivered three stairs for an exciting redevelopment project, the client knew he could depend on EeStairs to provide a fourth staircase. The bar was raised on this dining room staircase when we were challenged to provide something even more audacious.

Giving the designers free reign on the design whilst remaining mindful of the materials previously used we provided 3d visuals of three options, each bolder than the previous. The client chose the boldest design, much to our delight.

The solid oak treads are supported by one slim steel stringer, unusually found on the outer radius of the staircase rather than the inner. This design presented EeStairs with some structural challenges that we duly rose to. The inner section is supported by very tight radius toughened glass panels, linked to the treads with stainless steel sockets. The glass balustrade is capped by a timber handrail giving the stair a warm, homely feel.
