This magnificent heritage icon home in South Yarra lost many of its period features in a conversion/renovation in the 1970s. These works left the stairwell and balustrade looking very out of place. The current owner’s dream was to have a new balustrade installed in its place to better match the heritage features of the home. The feature turned bottom post (ex 150x150mm) was matched to existing heritage timber work in the original mansion as was the balusters. The 4000mm high ceilings give the large stairwell and portrait feel and the removal of the posts from the changes in pitch and direction lighten the area. Timber moulding was added to side of the strings for added detail. With custom turned balusters, newel post and hand crafted continuous handrails, the transition from a new, back to old balustrade is impressive and one of respect for this magnificent heritage icon home in South Yarra.Stair and Balustrade Material:
