Our clients from New Jersey were floating on cloud 9 when they saw the results of their new floating staircase! What do you think?
It all started in New Jersey with just an idea for an exceptional main staircase with a grand cathedral design. The owners wanted to enhance their beautiful staircase idea by adding a modern stair railing to it. The railings design was beautiful, but very challenging!
One of the first challenges we faced was that a structural steel member was required to be buried into the wall to provide structure to the stair treads. This as you can imagine, was a huge undertaking!
To make this job even more difficult, there was also a 90° turn, a landing, and a few floating stair treads. We created the floating stair landing illusion with specially engineered attachment points. This provided minimal visual presence while maintaining the necessary structural integrity. The support structure needed in the CEILING of this beautiful home was another huge challenge!
We had to employ our creativity when it came to the vertical suspension rods that suspended this modern staircase. The vertical rods were custom machined to provide an invisible attachment points. Brackets at the second-floor level were custom machined to keep the vertical rods aligned while having them stand off of the landing face. A very difficult task!
To finish it off, we wrapped and capped the floating stair treads completely in a stunning white oak. We also engineered the floating landing from white oak to leave a flawless look.
This modern staircase will be great testament to the New Jersey architects design vision, and will enhance this exceptional modern home for many years to come!
