Maida Vale Cantilever stair

This Portland stone cantilever staircase was designed,carved and installed by Templestone Masonry to fit within a very tight and in some places unsupported position. The left hand wall coming up from the curtail step was not considered by us or the contractor to be strong enough,the exterior wall at the mid point was, but then it had an arched door going through it. The wall with the glass door is not a structural wall so no weight could bear on this either.

We designed steels that could be let into the walls and spring across gaps to enable this to actually strengthen everything around it. This new stair now carries on the theme in the main house above and leads you down the first floor of 3 subterranean levels.

A Beautiful home with a fantastic looking stair.
