SS 855 - Clanricarde Gardens

Featured this week is a recently completed project installed in a modernised London apartment. Spiral Staircase Systems G-Fin tread system was chosen to maximise the amount of light in the large living room area. In order to conserve space, the staircase was designed to slice through the wall as it rises to the upper level.

The client was thrilled with the quality of the final product and the service provided, which was underlined by the main contractor who added:

"It is very rarely in my experience that something in real life looks as good as a photograph, which often hides nasty imperfections. This cannot in anyway be said about your superb staircase."
