CANAL Architectural were asked to produce another one of their elegant and contemporary cantilever staircases for this new modern home in Richmond.
The secret to this contemporary staircase’s success is in the hidden metalwork that CANAL manufacture and install seamlessly. The first fix involved mechanically fixing a structural steel stringer to the wall with protruding, welded cantilever steel channels. The stringer was then completely hidden by wall finishes: beautifully formed walnut timber box treads were then sleeved over the channels that match the ground floor living area flooring finish.
15mm toughened, low iron, glass balustrade panels were affixed onto the side of the channels using stainless steel pig nose fixings, which compliment the surrounding stainless steel features in the basement kitchen. The contemporary staircase was finished with a satin polished, stainless steel, 42mm slotted handrail to compliment the pig nose fixings and provide the modern look the client was asking for.
