Floating Staircases in Central London

CANAL Architectural create a grand entrance for a Central London penthouse with two floating cantilever staircases leading the way to stunning views. With a brief to produce high end, contemporary access for the multi-storey penthouse, CANAL used their knowledge and engineering expertise to transform the initial design ideas into two feature staircases incorporating glass balustrade throughout the apartment.

CANAL started the project at their state of the art manufacturing site in Nottingham fabricating the hidden metalwork structure; the secret behind the staircase’s success. Once transported to the apartment, CANAL had their own onsite installation team fitting the metalwork into place creating the first fix of the staircases. The beautiful solid timber box treads, matching the existing penthouse flooring, had bespoke LED rope lighting fitted under each tread beaming a soft light onto the one below. Once sleeved over and fitted, the CANAL team fixed the low iron glass balustrade panels onto each staircase and around the first and second floor openings that was supplied by ‘Glass & Stainless Ltd’. The overall look was complemented with the stainless steel handrail, which topped the glass balustrade throughout the property.

CANAL Architectural provide the full service from concept to completion for both residential and commercial environments in the UK and abroad.
