TA-DA!Posted on September 3rd 2015
A milestone moment has been reached at one of our new-build projects in St George’s Hill, with the removal of the blockwork supporting structure to the floating helical staircase. Created from solid stone, credit goes to The Stonemasonry Company for making our vision a reality. As you can see, Director Andrew Paulson was keen to be the first to test it:
The beautifully slender structure is achieved by stiffening the individual solid stone treads with a post-tensioned steel cable spine. This is all the more impressive when you consider that each flight turns through more than 180º. The top-lit staircase is the focal point on arrival at the 15,000 sqft house, offering a glimpse beyond to the view south across Surrey that the principal reception rooms enjoy.
