Domestic Canopy, Wales
Glass and Steel Semi-Circular Canopy.
A structural glass staircase, canopy and column cladding for a property in Wales. The seaward facing domestic canopy creates an outstanding feature when viewed from all aspects. The canopy uses triple laminated glass and marine grade stainless steel.
The organic property design has structural steel columns to mimic the ebb and flow of the tide. The architect struggled to find anyone who could clad the columns in steel, so Bisca stepped in to assist. Visible both inside and out, the columns are of marine grade steel with penny gap detailing.
Another part of this project is the structural glass staircase designed in empathy with the property. The prestigious family home, perched high on the coast enjoys amazing views of the Irish Sea. The design creates a sculptural feature yet does not detract from the vista outside.
A structural glass balustrade supports triple laminated, low iron glass treads. A hand polished oak handrail flows continuously from the swept back newel, up the stair and around the galleried landing.
Although we are known for staircases, we enjoy the variety of other architectural commissions. We are happy to discuss other architectural aspects of your project as well as the staircase.
