In this warehouse conversion, the client added a mezzanine floor and converted the loft into a living space. The challenge they encountered from this, was that they did not have enough room for a traditional staircase.
Because the sole access to both floors had to be placed in front of the home’s only source of natural light, our task was to create a two story, spiral staircase that allowed as much light in as possible.
We achieved this by using open risers and glass balustrades to keep the profile of this huge structure to a minimum. In addition, we added folded tread trays, which the client then infilled with timber that was reclaimed from the original building demolition, matching the timber to the ground floor.
