A solid footing on an upward spiral
EeStairs designed a sweeping staircase for the new headquarters of Dutch manufacturer Vreugdenhil.
This extraordinary sweeping staircase, unusual in it’s design, is charming to all who use it. From the ground floor the large proprtions of the staircase and industrial steel stringers and balustrades are as dramatic as the mountain landscape in which the property is located. Yet the addition of leather wrapped treads, which leave the white oak end caps exposed soften the staircase, making it warm and inviting. The unusual use of leather on the treads sparks curiosity as users wonder what it will be like to walk on. By the time they reach the top of the staircase users imaginations have already been sparked, leaving them with both a view of the landscape and a curiosity with which they can explore their surroundings.
Staircase with organic characteristic
This stunning staircase did not come without it’s challenges; nestled in a building that is characterised by a wooden structure outside, and exposed brickwork, wooden paneling and muted natural colours inside, EeStairs had to put it’s expertise to use to achieve the desired finish. Introducing steel to the interior provided an interesting contrast, but required EeStairs to apply an even patina finish to the steelwork, giving the staircase an organic characteristic, as though it had always been there.
EeStairs was able to deliver the stunning level of finish associated with an expert by developing a process of applying different pentinas to the metal work to achieve a flawless even finish.
