These dramatic staircases are some of Bisca’s latest one-off creations…
Their commissions are truly bespoke, designed and manufactured to each client’s specification and preferences. A sleek, stainless steel staircase works well in lofty spaces and buildings with a high-tech, contemporary style whereas a very grand home with an impressive entrance hall requires something more majestic. Aesthetic and structural implications need careful consideration and each staircase has to be planned individually. Designs must be beautiful as well as practical and safety is of paramount importance. And of course, all new staircases and balustrades must conform to building regulations.
Bisca’s brief here was to create an elegant and sweeping staircase flowing seamlessly from ground floor onto the first floor landing. Cantilevered dark walnut treads are complemented by a simple white painted plastered balustrade capped with a dark Havana hand-stitched handrail.
This staircase comprises oak treads supported on stainless steel stringers which lift the staircase from the floor, giving it a feel of ‘weightlessness’. The first two treads of the open risers flare out to give a welcoming aspect, their curved noses softening the overall linearity of the design.
Bisca used Corian for the first time for the treads of this fabulous 3-flight staircase they built for a client in the US. Shades of luxury cruise liners in the stainless steel balustrade…..
