Modern Stone Staircase, Brighton
Modern Stone Staircase with Dog-Gate.
Bisca created this modern stone staircase for a new build property in Brighton.
As the key aspect of the house, the staircase is designed using materials suggested by our clients.
The helical design has two flared treads at the foot, creating a feature as you enter the property.
Twin steel stringers sweep up the stair and around the landing. Bisca reconfigured existing landing edges, removing corners and protruding edges. The result is a usable stair with a grand sweep and sensible access to an adjacent door at ground floor.
Low iron glass balustrades slot into the stringers. This eliminates the need for visible clamps and gives an elegant clean finish on the treads.
The handrail is oval stainless steel, following the curves of the balustrade and landing.
The steel structure was clad in cool marble stone treads and risers, matching that of the floor. Feature newels of stainless steel end in the 3rd tread to provide greater width at the foot. At the top of the staircase, we took care to create a smooth integration with the carpet of the first floor.
Also at the top of the staircase is a dog-gate. The design of the dog-gate allows the glass to fold completely back when not in use, thus reducing its visibility. The dog-gate can also be completely removed if no longer required.
Dog-gates are available as part of a staircase or balustrade design, not as a stand-alone item. For more information on this project, please mention 5267.
