This bamboo and glass staircase was designed to give a floating cantilevered effect.

The treads are made using eco friendly sustainable bamboo. The outside of the treads is supported with structural glass attached only to the edge of the first floor leaving the bamboo floor beneath the bottom treads untouched.

The wall side of the treads is fixed with structural pins into the wall. A curved and swept, round bamboo hand rail fixed to the wall was designed to follow the shape of the stair treads. During the preparation building work an old original ice store was discovered beneath the floor. Kevala Stair also fabricated an illuminated glass floor structure to ensure the ice store will never be lost from sight again.
