Spiral UK recently completed this beautiful spiral staircase within a modern barn conversion near Falmouth, Cornwall. The staircase was designed to maintain the light and airy feel achieved in the surrounding living spaces. The elegant staircase spirals down in an elegant sweeping motion to capture light at all angles.
The stone treads, specially imported from Germany, helped to enhance the light and airy aesthetic achieved in this entrance design. The striking cantilevered design provides a ‘floating’ aesthetic that give the staircase a light and delicate appearance. The ‘floating staircase’, measuring a grand height of just under 3 metres and a spiral diameter of 2160mm, had a polished stainless-steel handrail with toughened curved glass balustrade panels that flowed from the ground floor up through to the balcony on the first floor.
The light toned design of this spiral staircase helped the homeowners to increase the amount of light within the entrance hall by allowing the light to continue to flow throughout the space without any light obstruction. The curved balustrades help to reflect light around the property at various angles to further enhance the light and airy design.
The stone treads were manufactured in Botticino Italian Marble with a honed finish. To create a cohesive design, Spiral UK also supplied the floor tiles to match the tread of the spiral staircase.
Spiral UK have a vibrant display of spiral stair designs in their show space at the Sky House Design Centre. To see some of their stair designs in person, call us to arrange a showroom visit on 01494 722 880.
