This contemporary glass spiral staircase perfectly complements this South London property. While the Canal drawing team completed the detailing of the staircase. This particular project involved many sub-contractors coming together.

Good communication and a professional approach were imperative to achieving the overall impact of this intelligent and considered design.

The main interior stair structure is a stainless steel box section acting as a centre spine with concrete filled, steel tread carriers, clad in marble. Whilst fully fabricating the balustrade in stainless steel box sections to create a harp like effect. Later on an elliptical timber handrail adds a perfect finishing touch, completing the interior staircase.

The atrium glass balustrade was constructed from low iron glass with a custom made glass track.

Next, to access the garden from the balcony, this contemporary home required an external glass spiral staircase.

A sweeping spiral staircase with a small footprint provides the access needed but also draws attention to the surrounding natural landscape.

In addition, a simple slotted stainless steel handrail atop 15mm toughened glass panels fitted the bill perfectly: Complementing the house and landscape as well as making a lasting impression.

The seemingly simple, clean lines of the design meant the quality of the drawings, close attention to every detail and excellent communication between Canal, the main contractor, Octagon Developments, and the client were critical to the overall success of the project.

“From the start we found Canal’s approach to what was a complex project; very professional, efficient and attention to detail extremely good. My Client did, on numerous occasions, refer to Canal as the best contractor working on the project, I would agree.”
