Sinuous internal balustrade

Wroath web 1

Our clients in Blagdon were looking for a unique balustrade to complement their new staircase, something dynamic and contemporary in design but with solid, firmly traditional construction, emulating the sinuous quality of the staircase.  We think the final piece is a striking addition to what will be a beautiful home once finished.

Revisiting a lovely staircase

This weekend I revisited a project we completed a few years ago now, and had the opportunity to take some photos. This beautiful stair balustrade which incorporates cast panels was made for a Georgian family home on the edge of Bath. The wooden handrail has yet to be installed. Nice work!

 

 

 

 

The Widcombe Hill Balustrade

Here are some pics of Ironart’s Jim Purry working on a wrought iron balustrade, designed and made for a Grade II listed mansion on the edge of Bath. We were very lucky to be able to work on this stunning property during the restoration of the whole building. This lovely balustrade replaced some bog-standard white panel railings on a terrace. Andy offered the clients various options on the panel detail (see drawings) based on other examples in and around Bath.

In the workshop today…18th July

Just a few snaps of the team hard at work in the intense heat we’ve been experiencing. Martin and Paul are pictured putting the finishing touches to the renewed leadwork detail on a pair of beautiful balconettes which we have been commissioned to restore for a listed property in Bath. Interestingly although they look very similar the two balconnettes are not identical – and one is older than the other.

Dom looking delighted to be doing his ‘maths homework’ on the handrail of a lovely decorative balustrade for a period property on the fringes of Bath.  James and Jason finishing off some simple panel railings while Jim is working on some hot forged scrolls for the same balustrade.
