We were commisioned to design, manufacture and install this project in a private apartment building in Kings Cross. The project involved a variety of flights over four stories linking penthouse flats. All parts were designed and made at our studio workshop in west London. Peter Hughes/ Photoview

The concept of the project is solid oak treads to the lower reception levels and vinyl clad stairs to the upper levels. All levels are handrailed by our straight and curved handrails and bespoke balustrading. Peter Hughes/ Photoview

This was a problematic flight because it spans a long distance. The core is steel framed and clad with plasterboard and oak. We spray finished the metal balustrade posts with a dark Green finish. Peter Hughes/ Photoview

We designed and made all the flights, balustrades amd handrails at our works in west London. The balustrade is special because the posts are slim and the glass is clamped along the top and sides. Peter Hughes/ Photoview

We designed and made the handrails in our studio workshop in west London. The 180 degree winders converge to a point and the handrail is made to turn the corner providing a smooth transition between the flights as you walk up the through the building. Peter Hughes/ Photoview

We have developed this technique of curving handrails in any direction using oak. Our background knowledge of construction has allowed us to integrate our staircases, balustrades and handrails into buildings seemlessly. Peter Hughes/ Photoview
