The stair sits within a double-height hallway which is the centrepiece of a domestic refurbishment to an existing Victorian property that amalgamates two flats into a single duplex unit.

The stair has distinctive silhouette created from a complex geometry of folded triangular facets which appear to float effortlessly within the space. These facets are fabricated from 6mm stainless steel with a brushed finish selected to accentuate the light from the rooflight above. An elegant toughened glass balustrade completes the composition.
