An oak staircase is a major feature in the grand hall of a large newly-built country house. It was constructed in accord with detail taken from a 16th century staircase.
The staircase is almost 4 feet wide. The newel posts have a cross section of 6"x6" and the balustrade has a cross-section of 3"x3". These dimensions are unusually large but are in proportion to the size of the room.
The oak beams and 150 square meters of oak floor in this room were an earlier commission.
This limed oak, open tread staircase, mezzanine floor with gallery combination, creates a spacious functional feature of this barn conversion.
This magical oak staircase was constructed from an old oak tree grown on the client’s estate. The staircase was designed to fit in shape and style around the workings of an old mill in the developed property.
