Bespoke Spiral Staircase18 August 2020
This impressive sprawling spiraling staircase clad in opulent Florida White Marble is the ultimate feature piece in this luxury family home.
Cast in a situ concrete structure, it is nothing short of a jaw-dropping feature. Floating in mid-air, the staircase really is a spectacular feat of engineering running from the basement to the second floor.
One of the most impressive elements of this breath-taking project is how it centralises perfectly to the front door. This creates perfect symmetry and a stunning first impression.
Gordon Fleck, Senior Stone Consultant and Marcus Smith, Head of Bespoke at Artisans of Devizes worked closely with the client on the selection process to establish the correct tone and character of marble to create this timeless masterpiece. This included visits to a marble yard to enable the client to really envisage how the natural stone would look, work, and fit in with their family life.
When reflecting on the project, the client said, “Artisans of Devizes were recommended to us by an associate. From the outset Gordon was the personification of professionalism. He took on board our requirements, understanding the brief and presented viable options.”
Once the initial concrete structure was in place, Artisans of Devizes continued to develop the specification and after digital surveys were completed the details were confirmed. The staircase was set to be covered from top to bottom in Florida White Marble. In addition to this, bespoke elements such as pencil profile treads, honed risers, decorative scroll ends and atrium edging were also cut to perfect precision at Artisans UK based warehouse.
To help continue the feeling of rolling symmetry, Artisans also supplied over 300m2 of 80×80 Florida White Marble tiles, along with a segmented centerpiece surrounding the spiral staircase.
The client continued, “After several visits to some well stocked yards we selected a marble which was secured from Italy. Gordon managed the entire process relatively seamlessly. Marcus and his installation team worked with exacting requirements in what was a unique and challenging concept. The finished project is nothing short of stunning. The workmanship and eye to detail from Artisans has been instrumental in achieving that.
“We would wholeheartedly recommend Artisans of Devizes, Gordon and Marcus for any upscale projects. We will no doubt use them again in the future.”
