Single offset spine staircase and landings connecting 6 floors in fashionable London mansion.
Having achieved our status for delivering difficult and demanding design led projects, Elite Metalcraft were delighted to have been chosen to
manage the manufacturing design process including prototype work, supply and installation on this exciting staircase.
This architectural masterpiece of engineering, tested the very limits of structural design creativity.
Solid blocks of Carrara Marble 90mm thick with very delicate colouring were hewn out to accept the structural tread supports offset on central spine.
Low iron toughened and laminated 21.5mm thick glass balustrade throughout, some panels extending to 6.5 metres in length.
Handrail formed from machined Carrara marble bonded to top of laminated glass and marble cappings to cover tread ends.
This project not only tested our craftsmanship and ability to manufacture to extremely tight tolerances but also our management team to coordinate
the complex issues involved with sequencing the site installation of the staircase and glass balustrade and an exacting paint finish.
Special purpose glass lifting equipment was manufactured and tested prior to site use, to lift these enormous panels into a restricted void.
