Bespoke Staircases


Seadrift, Devon

Seadrift is a new build property with stunning views overlooking the Kingsbridge estuary.

Designed to take advantage of its riverside position the building is light and airy with the soft neutral tones and splashes of blue bringing the calming atmosphere of the external landscape inside.

Spiral UK designed a cantilever or floating staircase as a feature on entering the house. Cantilever staircases are very suited to contemporary interiors and this modern staircase design was no exception with beautiful oak treads and handrails attached to glass balustrade.

Cantilever staircase

The cantilever staircase created a striking centrepiece feature on entering the home and led to the first floor and master bedroom. Designed to blend seamlessly with the soft and stylish coastal interior design. The staircase had oak box treads and glass balustrade. The treads were fabricated in steel with a neoprene layer for sound insulation and then encased in engineered oak.

The stringers were concealed in the wall structure to create the floating staircase effect. The oak and glass combination really added to the natural tones of the property creating a laid-back chic design.
