A helical stair of character oak for a new build farmhouse. The new build is on the site of the former farmhouse perched high in the Yorkshire Dales.
We made a 180-degree change to the staircase layout as drawn by the architect, moving the door to create a large entrance hall. This means you can now walk upstairs looking at the view, whilst at the same time making the landing usable instead of dead space.
The original hall was going to be rather dark and the clients originally needed open treads to aid light transfer. Bisca's layout lets in more light and enables them to have the closed treads which they preferred.
Our clients reclaimed much of the original property's timber and ironmongery for use in their new home. The original pewter door furniture inspired the burnished and lacquered balustrade. An oval profile handrail caps the uprights, turning into sweeping newels at the foot of the stair.
Character oak forms the treads and risers and tones with the reclaimed timber of the doors. The curved stair reaches the first-floor landing at an angle, increasing the size of a reading area.
Visitors notice the beauty of the sculptural soffit as they pass through into the farmhouse kitchen beyond.
