Art Nouveau Staircase, Newcastle
Over 150m of steel bar was used in the Art Nouveau scrolls alone
This staircase is a modern-day interpretation of Art Nouveau, in keeping with the property’s Arts and Crafts architecture.
The hall had already been reconfigured, and our client spent weeks scouring the internet looking for images of the perfect staircase, before realising it didn’t actually exist.
We developed designs on paper before moving to CAD, working closely with the client throughout the design process.
A slim steel structure supports pale oak treads and risers with a white-painted soffit to the underside. The layout makes the most of the space and allows furniture to be placed underneath.
The balustrade has an organic feel, created by 150m of tapered and scrolled steel set into panels.
A feature tread at the foot of the staircase is over 2m wide and provides a base for fabulous caged newels. Continuing the drama, oval-shaped handrails terminate in exaggerated volutes over the newels.
