This was a once in a lifetime opportunity to create the most demanding and inspiring staircase projects ever undertaken by Elite Metalcraft and brought delight and satisfaction to all concerned. The Elliptical cantilevered stainless steel staircase carriage and landing with fully exposed soffit and spoke like stainless steel balustrade was a huge achievement.
The entire cantilevered staircase structure is held in place using 8No 75mm diameter solid stainless steel bars protruding from the curved wall.
The bronze handrail was moulded from an 80mm wide solid bronze section and had a verdigris patina site applied finish.
We developed a bespoke pitted surface treatment to all the exposed stainless steel surfaces to give the whole structure a cast steel appearance.
This staircase bares testament to the amazing combination of design and craftsmanship that is the hallmark of Elite Metalcraft.
Terrazzo treads and risers were cast in one piece and bonded onto the staircase.
