Cantilever stone staircases, designed and created by The Stone Staircase Company.
A firm favourite of Georgian architects, the Italian cantilever stone staircase has seen a resurgence in popularity and, over the last few years, we have been refining ancient techniques, combining the craftsman’s innate skill with modern methods to produce some beautiful cantilever stairs for new build and refurbishment projects.
The simple design allows these elegant constructions to fit any space or shape of stairwell – elliptical, circular or rectangular.
We offer a truly bespoke service and can advise on design and materials: choose from a vast range of stone including Portland stone, Clipsham stone, Cadeby stone, or any French limestone, Anstrude, Massangis stone, Combe Brune or Crema Marfil, mocha cream or crème, as well as an almost infinite range of astragals, nosings and finishes.
Whichever material you choose, your catilever staircase is meticulously crafted in our workshop, step by step: after completing an on-site survey, we use a computer to create an accurate template. The stone is then shaped by hand, ensuring a flawless interface with the existing landing, floor or balustrade.
We have fitted a large number of stone cantilever staircases throughout the world, and have gained considerable experience in this area both on-site and through observation of antique stone staircases: by identifying weaknesses in their design, we can ensure that your staircase will be robust as well as elegant.
We are working constantly throughout England.
A recent project was based in Oslo, Norway, where we created a large, eliptical cantilever stone staircase with 22 steps in Botticino marble. Click on the image gallery to the right to see pictures of this project . Read more about the Botticino marble cantilever staircase >>
