Feature Staircase Essex University

A feature staircase in the Albert Sloman Library was formed from milled steel, we then clad the structure in prime European White Oak on both top and bottom of the tread and landings. The steps included two rebated strips on the tread for carborundum strips for grip and Wenge on the riser for a design detail.

An extremely precise installation, the juxtaposition of the hard steel with the almost floating wood created a memorable staircase that was part of building design that won prestigious RIBA awards.
