Case Studies

Highmead, Dorset

This wonderful residential staircase was created in collaboration with Northcott Building Contractors. We designed and built this modern spiral staircase design, fabricating it in steel in our factory.

Northcott Building Contractors then installed it adding the boarding and finish to the balustrade and cladding the treads.

The spiral stairs join two floors and are designed to suit a Scandinavian inspired new build property overlooking the Dorset coast. The modern building is open plan with clean, crisp lines and lots of light. The windows taking advantage of the many countryside and sea views.

The spiral staircase was contemporary in style with timber treads that matched the flooring and organic white full height chunky balustrade. The beautiful smooth sculptural curve created a modern stair feature in the centre of the home.

One of the owners of this property is a classical musician and the spiral staircase is said to represent a treble clef.

Modern spiral staircase

Spiral UK designed and manufactured these contemporary spiral stairs as a supply only staircase.

We fabricated a spiral staircase with closed risers and a steel balustrade framework and delivered it to Northcott Building contractors who installed and finished the stair by cladding the treads in timber and the balustrade framework in plasterboard.

The beautiful smooth curves were created using a plastered soffit and then boarding and decorating the metal framework balustrade.
