Bespoke Staircases

Case Studies

Taliesin Building, Swansea University

The helical staircase we designed, manufactured and installed for this project was part of a £2M refurbishment of the Taliesin Arts Centre at the Singleton Campus, Swansea University.

The aim of the project was to transform the theatre which is used by students and the Swansea community into a student learning and creativity zone. It would create a flexible space for students to study and learn, for people to meet, and for groups and societies to hold activities. Our commercial stairs needed to harmonise perfectly with this new space.

Helical staircase

We developed an eye-catching steel helical stair to suit the space including a structural glass balustrade to the upper floor gallery and a sculptural central fin. This clever use of helical staircase design created a practical bespoke staircase which is also an elegant design feature.
