Modern Dwarf wall feature balustrade

This modern “U” shaped looks very simple but had some unique challenges requiring the stair to be redesigned giving different starting and finishing points. The clients didn’t want any fixing to the floor nor did they want any vertical uprights supporting the glass balustrade. To achieve these fixings points were installed in the walls at frame stage. The staircase commences with a bullnose step. The staircase is closed with concealed cut strings.The  treads and landings have been individually joined. The plastered dwarf walls were designed and structured in hand with strings.The first floor balustrade is 12mm toughened glass side mounted deep fascia’s  to provide structural support of the glass and stainless steel rails. Wallrails are 38mm Square stainless steel.
