A steel floating staircase with a glass balustrade and wooden treads in a modern home in Auckland.

This Stairworks Wainui Road floating staircase was quite the tricky project because the team had to lift it in by hand due to the nature of the site. These steel stairs weighted about 300 kilos and required about 6 team members to help lift it into place. 


Floating stairs (also known as a stringer staircase) give a light and airy feel with a sense of openness, which was perfect for this home that was designed to accentuate the natural light from its multiple windows.


Our in-house designer worked with the contractor (who was also the owner) to achieve a staircase design that met these requirements. This project used the full Stairworks package, which included PS1, engineering and design through fabrication and installation.
