This hand-crafted, wrought iron balustrade was inspired by the Brambledown stair in Gerrards Cross.

The original 3D design, translated into a single plane, complements and contrasts with the clean lines of the marble treads, and extends along the galleries.

At the base of each staircase, the crown walnut handrail profile with hand-carved scroll gives the impression of a falling teardrop, trailing the contour of the handrail base.

The contrasting curves and lines are reflected in the octagonal mounting points which anchor the panels (to the side stringers and apron areas of the galleries), and create another detail of architectural interest.
