Team effort secures the Best Joinery Product at Build It Awards 2015

Back on the Winners Podium at Build It Awards 2015.

Following on from our 2013 win, and 2104 shortlisting, we were proud to be awarded Best Joinery Product for this Shippon Staircase.

The staircase was a great favourite with the whole team from start to finish – most of whom had a hand in its creation.

Everyone at Bisca is as delighted with the award as the client was with their commission.

Our clients were converting a 400 year old listed Shippon (cow-shed) in Devon. Bisca’s brief was to design a new feature timber staircase that would immediately look part of the original architecture yet not detract from the building’s provenance and humble beginnings.

The staircase features hand carved solid treads and landing from locally harvested green oak, blacksmith forged, formed & finished uprights and newel with hand stitched Havana leather handrail.
