Bespoke Staircases

Case Studies

The Chapel, Hampstead Manor, London

The Chapel is a grade II listed building that has been converted into a new family home as part of Mount Anvil’s Hampstead Manor development; which was formerly part of Westfield College’s campus.

The interiors have been carefully designed to remain in keeping with the building’s heritage, a neo-Grecian design, but maintain a smooth contemporary, if not opulent, look. This was the brief that we fulfilled when designing the staircase that gave access to the bedrooms and private terraces.

We created a sleek helical to straight staircase design with stone treads, closed risers, glass balustrade and oak handrails. The curved staircase was in keeping with the exquisite conversion of the building and delivered an unassuming elegance in a property on the market for £7.5 million.

Curved to straight staircase

The bespoke staircase we installed suited the period features of the property perfectly with the fabricated steel stringer hidden in the wall on one side, treads and risers clad in honed marble and frameless glass fitted to the inner stringer channel.

The oak handrail reflected the timber panelling features throughout the property and the modern staircase design delivered a classic, timeless look that fitted seamlessly with the lavish interior design.
