Lifts, Stairs & Balustrades

Floating staircase 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 these two feature staircases and interior glass balustrade running throughout the apartment.

CANAL started the project at their state of the art manufacturing site in Nottingham fabricating the hidden metalwork structure that is the secret behind the staircase’s success and the subtle designed stainless steel handrail. 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 strips 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. The overall look was complemented with the stainless steel handrail, which topped the glass balustrade throughout the property.
