Highbury HillContemporary Staircase, London
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Walker designed the glass and steel staircase. Having then received quotes from stair companies of between £30,000 and £35,000 to create and install it, he decided to do it himself, although this option might not be for everyone. “I got a steel fabricator to put in the framework for about £2,000 and a structural engineer designed the stairs for about £500,” he says. “Then it’s triple laminated glass for the treads and double laminated for the balustrades, which cost around £5,000.” The whole design came in at a much more reasonable £7,500. “I had to do a fair bit of running around between the trades and a lot of the measurements were my own, so there was some risk! But I saved money,” says Walker.
