Helical office stairs
This office staircase reaches out in a spectacular curve into a six-storey atrium overlooking the London skyline and the Gherkin. The staircase was fabricated in steel with oak timber treads and glass risers, for diffusing light, counteracting the effect of the full height outer balustrade clad in oak. The inner balustrade is in glass with both sides using an oak handrail with LED lights underneath.
What really made this helical staircase so bespoke and unique was the fabricated steel planter channel we created for the outer balustrade. This has been planted and now these office stairs have a carefully chosen selection of trailing plants growing over the sides of the outer balustrade. The aim being to oxygenate the air and boost employee satisfaction.
