We are delighted with this installation project for this complex staircase, which looks absolutely stunning from all angles.

This type of stair configuration is also referred to as a T Stair or Split Stairs and is often used in entrance halls of luxury homes as it creates a stunning centrepiece with a dramatic effect and a feeling of grandeur.

Our award winning Contender Staircase was specified, which adds a modern and contemporary feel for this configuration. The central spine stair has a quarter landing, which then splits into two flights, one turning to the left and the other to the right, leading to two opposite galleried landings.

With glass balustrades and no visible fixing element, this gives the look of a seamless 'floating staircase', exuding quality.

The steel string is finished in White for a stylish feel, contrasting against the treads, whilst also blending in with the interior decor, to enhance the appearance of the floating stair effect.

Stained Walnut treads are 100mm thickness for a chunky look. Timber covers are routed and fitted on to the glass balustrades to conceal the fixings and give the look that the glass has passed through the treads, enhancing the 'floating tread' appearance. Special detail to the timber covers for the treads around the quarter landing are perfectly designed.

The Box Platform consists of a larger tread that can be accessed from a wider angle, creating an inviting approach.

Stained Walnut Handrails add a beautiful finishing touch to the stairway and galleried landings, with Stained Walnut aprons concealing the glass balustrade fixings around the opening.


A suite of Classic Nouveau CO41 doors in Torino, Ash were also installed throughout the property. The doors feature a CNC cut pattern with intricate detail in a 4 panel design, precision machined using our latest CNC technology to cut and emulate panel designs. This design adds a beautiful and stunning detail to complement the staircase and further enhance this contemporary home.


The Aluminium Pivot Entrance Door with Corten Steel effect was also installed, which makes a very grand entrance for this luxury home.
