Two staircases in Wallingford

These two staircases were built for clients in Wallingford, Oxfordshire who live in an ancient timber-framed ‘maltings’. 

The first brief for this project was for a contemporary staircase that complemented the timber framed building. It was important that the stairs did not have any support posts which would have interrupted the space below, so we worked in conjunction with a structural engineer to resolve the hidden structures set deep into the walls. These lovely stairs are set on a stone base, they have cast iron treads, with lead cast ball detailing on the balustrades which are set into a decorative cut stringer. We worked alongside AF Jones, Stonemasons who are based in Ipsden, Oxford.

The second element of this project was a bespoke ‘hit and miss’ staircase with half treads on each step. Our clients wanted a contemporary design to access a mezzanine level within a bedroom where space was limited. ‘Hit and miss’ staircases are great where you want to create a steep access, the ‘going’ on these stairs is almost half the ‘rise’.  The stairs have laser cut treads, with laser cut stringers and the design was an ideal, practical solution for the room.
