Haldane UK has completed the refurbishment of a 2 storey staircase in a luxury home in Devon, removing the existing post to post stair and replacing it with a fully continuous Sapele handrail, slimline timber spindles and volute newels.
The client had been looking to change his existing traditional staircase with a contemporary design which would open up the area and allow more natural light from the feature window.
The large newel posts and spindles were replaced with tapered 35mm spindles with only two 50mm volute newels providing the structural support to the handrail at the bottom of the staircase.
The continuous handrail featuring a 70 x 50mm handrail profile flows perfectly up the tight turning staircase using a combination of 180 degree raking to raking wreaths and 90 degree raking to horizontal wreaths.
Haldane also created a stunning feature to the base of the staircase, replacing the existing bullnose tread with a new scrolled bullnose tread to mirror the shape and turn of the wreath volutes.
