We are able to bend and form a wide variety of materials that perhaps you would normally not expect to see, they can actually be turned into some absolutely stunning shapes. Working with timber is one of those materials where we can now create stairs rotating through 360 degrees or more to take it to the extreme with an unlimited variety of colours and textures.

Zigzag staircases

Zig Zag style staircases can be created in many varying formats from wood to steel with treads in all kinds of materials. The Zig Zag shape is created when viewed from the side elevation as the above image displays.

We can use steel or wood to form the Zig Zag or we could combine the two elements to form some striking staircase designs.

Balustrades are designed to complement the setting so they could be frameless glass, to double curved spindles as we create our own designs and stairs to suit your requirements.

The possibilities are endless!

Central spine staircases have a back bone which does not always mean the stair has a rectangular steel support, it can be created in many ways. This central support or central spine as it is commonly known is used as a main support for the stair treads between floors. These examples show how varied the central support can be, it does not have to be straight it can potentially rotate through 360 degrees depending upon the materials were using to develop your beautiful central spine stairs.

Our FSC European oak comes to us as raw unfinished planks from a highly specialised mill in Central Europe. The origin of this European oak has been specially chosen by our supplier for numerous reasons including perfect climate, soil mineral content and the growing and felling conditions. This results in producing the perfect tannin and patina within the oak, essential in the creation of our special hand finished bespoke designer staircases.

Our finishes are created, hand applied and are unique to us, tailor made the traditional way from natural ingredients and the addition of many modern day techniques.  These finishes are applied by our skilled craftsmen by hand, tread by tread and then left to air dry and harden naturally after each process on drying racks.
