Decorative staircase, landing and balustrade in Clifton

We are often contacted to make bespoke balconies and balustrades for period properties.

Most recently we have been involved in a comprehensive project to design, make and fit a decorative and highly detailed external  staircase, landing and balustrade for a townhouse in Clifton, Bristol.

The structure includes a landing radiused at one end with cast iron landing plates, a staircase with decorative cut stringers, cast iron treads with custom made bull nose edging to the sides.

The wrought iron balustrade features a convex handrail, traditional hot forged scrollwork, lead cast fleur de lys details and cast iron newel posts. The design of the balustrade was taken from the existing balustrade to the front of the property  which the clients were keen to mirror this design in the new balustrade.

Overall a stunning piece and beautiful exterior showcasing the property.

A new staircase on the Royal Crescent

The Ironart team recently installed this winding staircase to the lower ground floor of a large Georgian town house on the Royal Crescent in Bath for Simon Morray-Jones Architects. This staircase was constructed to the Architect’s specification and was based on their design. It incorporates cast aluminium stair treads and a cast steel bush detail on every baluster. We have made lots of staircases in recent years, not least a spiral staircase on another house in the Royal Crescent which is also pictured on our website at the following link.
