Significant Staircase Design Incorporating a new Floor-to-Ceiling Bookcase

Staircase proefficinents Bisca were approached by just a client who was renovating a new rambling stone-built farmhouse deeply in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, Northern England. Vital to this conversion was the replacing the staircase and the opening of the ground floor. This area at first featured a timber design that sat awkwardly inside the space, with very low crown heights and in a style that is too opulent for its natural environment. Replacing this staircase will prove to be key to modernizing the within since a new design will allow much more light into walk out with its single small eye-port.


To link the ground to help first and first to help second floors, an industrial-looking staircase was requested which will needed to incorporate a floor-to-ceiling furniture. Natural materials were preferred for the design, such as pale Uk Oak for the treads in addition to risers, forge-formed steel for any balustrade uprights and hand-stitched leather for the handrails. Sweeping continuously from ground to help second floor, the balustrades curve subtly whilst often the newel has bright shows in the burnished finish that offer the illusion of having been recently created by generations of hands and fingers passing up the staircase.
