Loch Lomond Staircase – Argyll & Bute
I approached A&M to design and make a bespoke self supporting hardwood staircase for my B-listed building. I had high expectations and standards. I ended up with a work of art, thank you boys, I shall be using you again.
This stair was part of a very large renovation of a former stable and clock tower. The client wanted a stair which would weave between the windows of the existing exterior wall, and retain as much of this light as possible. This involved creating a structure which did not rely on a central newel post, instead using cranked engineered stringers springing from the exterior wall of the building.
The construction is engineered Scottish oak clad stringers with Scottish oak treads and risers, and an American Black Walnut nosing insert.
This stair maintains a very small footprint in the room, and so keeps the feeling of space the client was hoping to achieve with their renovation.
