Paddington Office - Spiral Staircase

This feature spiral staircase is located in a events management office in Paddington, London.

It is constructed generally in mild steel, consisting of a central column with radiating folded steel treads supporting bright orange perforated balustrade panels. These are then capped off with a satin polished stainless steel handrail.

The following 3D concept renderings were produced during the design phase.

This staircase featured perforated mild steel balustrade panels which were completed in a bright orange powder coat finish. This gave the staircase an industrial but colourful look which blended in with the interior colour scheme.

Paddington Library - Completed Images

This recently completed Part M compliant horse-shoe shaped straight staircase provides access between two levels in a library in Paddington.

It is constructed mainly in satin polished stainless steel with etched glass balustrading for modesty and European oak treads and risers.

The unique tread design features an L.E.D strip recessed in the nosing which floods light upon the tread below. This detail works well with the opaque glass balustrade, giving the staircase a warm "glow".

The Completed Magnolia Barn Staircase

Following up on our recent posts showing the Preview Sketches and Preview Renderings for the new Magnolia Barn staircase, we can now present photos of the completed stair!

b2ap3_thumbnail_DSCF2588-copy.jpg

This staircase eschews metal stringers in favour of support from glass panels suspended from the upper level. Solid Oak treads and toughened glass risers combine to make an extremely stiff and structurally sound staircase. The strength of the staircase has made it possible to omit the internal balustrade entirely, adding to the stairs dramatic impact.

New 'Levitate' Staircase Design

Introducing the new 'Levitate' staircase, the latest creation designed for Spiral Staircase Systems by Paul Barton.

The objective of this design was to produce the most minimal staircase possible using only the essential spiral staircase elements - treads, pole, balustrade and handrail. The usual supporting brackets have been entirely removed to give the illusion of unsupported treads which defy gravity.

b2ap3_thumbnail_Radial-Stair-Glass-copy.jpg

The first 'Levitate' staircase was recently installed in a stylish new home in Surrey. Solid European Oak treads and handrails add warmth to the toughened glass balustrade panels and the polished stainless steel centre pole. Matching timber risers ensured compliance to British Standards although these can be supplied in glass if required. Most importantly, the client was extremely happy with the new staircase and impressed with its minimal look which brought the WOW! factor to their new home.
