I design and make unique staircases, handrails and architectural features for private clients who are actively reducing their carbon footprint. My mission is to enhance my clients homes or workplaces by creating exquisitely detailed and realised pieces and transform the spaces they sit in.
In 2019 my company declared a Climate Emergency and sought to dramatically reduce the CO2 emissions from our work. So far we have reduced our electricity use by 60% by replacing our workshop lighting with high efficient LED fittings. We now only work in the following postcodes W4, W5, W6, W7, W8, W10, W12, SW6, SW13, SW14, SW15 to minimise travel distances in order that transportation can be by human powered vehicles. I also strategically plan each project to minimise its carbon footprint. Each project is 'weighed' to demonstrate its low carbon budget.
I combine wood, metal, glass and unusual materials into functional sculpture. I am skilled in managing the interfaces between materials with different characteristics. Exceptional aesthetics and spatial composition are at the centre of my vision.
I am Robert Steer and as creative director I split my time between designing and making. I have been interested in building design, construction and materials all my life and read architecture and construction at degree level, eventually after spending a decade working in traditional architecture I evolved my practice to focus on staircase architecture. Over several years I have carefully built up a committed team of designers and makers who work with me.
My passion is the design and coordination of ideas and materials to make interesting and well articulated functional pieces for the home and work place. I am particularly enthusiastic about innovative solutions to the design brief that exceed the clients expectations. My company approaches each new project with an open mind and no pre conceived concept of how we will the piece will be designed. Its exciting to work with clients to find out what they really desire and then to make it for them.
Project costs are proposed then evaluated for each project. Generally to design and make an architectural staircase or balustrade costs start at around £20k + vat.
All projects begin with a conversation so if you have an idea that you would like to discuss in further detail then please do get in contact.
