Experts in Corian® for Staircases
When The Crown Estate and Oxford Properties re-established historic St James’s Market with 210,000 sq ft of offices alongside luxury lifestyle retail in Central London, Unique Fabrications were brought in to create a showstopping cantilever staircase. For this technically challenging brief, Corian® was chosen because of its smooth, tactile appearance and its high impact endurance.
Designed by Make Architects, London, this impressive staircase spans between seven floors, each section cantilevers between the floors resulting with minimal slip joins to allow for movement. 280 sheets of Glacier White Corian® were used, encasing the structural framework seamlessly. Over 400 separate CAD drawings were required to ensure each panel was precision cut including the cuts around each stair tread before being brought to site. Invisible joints created a smooth flow from one floor to another.
“This fabulous building on iconic Regent Street needed something special to complement the new office spaces, eateries and luxury lifestyle retail. Corian® was the obvious choice primarily because this incredible staircase had to appear as one smooth, flowing design that is as beautiful as it is practical.”
