Nestled in the heart of London, Parliament View apartments offer uncompromised views across the capital towards the Houses of Parliament.
With the help from Canal, this custom spiral staircase opens up the penthouse but also creates an elegant access solution.
In order to enhance open space on the upper floor of the apartment, Canal fabricated a new steel structure. The structure provides support for an extended mezzanine landing as well as a surface to affix low-iron glass balustrades to maximise natural light flow.
The client was keen to make a feature of the staircase as well as the design being space efficient. A custom spiral staircase provides an elegant connection between floors and do not take up unnecessary space.
Canal fabricated a solid stainless steel ribbon stringer, creating support on one side of the custom spiral staircase as well as incorporating the new curved low-iron glass balustrade.
A stainless steel central column also provides support on the other side of the staircase. Canal also give the steel column a satin finish to complement the other finishing on the staircase.
In addition, the low iron glass treads have a bespoke etched detail to match the balustrading but also to increase the natural light flow.
A satin polished slotted stainless steel handrail was installed to complement the surroundings and provide a stylish and safe solution.
