A listed building stair renovation in York where Bisca transformed the lobby area by simply replacing existing stair treads and fitting a new balustrade.
The new balustrade had to be contemporary, yet at the same time sympathetic and in keeping with the heritage of the traditional property.
We totally reclad the staircase in English oak. English oak has a beautifully figured grain and blends in with the existing timber in the property.
The treads themselves featured a slight bullnose to add interest and slightly protrude from the stair structure. This adds a perceived width to the staircase and creates a cameo through the feature archway when viewed from the side.
The new balustrade design is satin finished stainless steel handrail; forged, formed, tapered and blackened uprights. It continues up the stair, around the landing edges and along the gallery replacing a run of faux mahogany coloured wooden spindles. At the foot of the staircase, we added larger directional treads and a forged stainless newel that sweeps down to the floor.
We have earned a reputation for listed building stair renovation and would be happy to talk through your project with you.
