Joseph shop stair, Sloane Street

Stainless steel and glass stair

Client: Eva Jiricna Architects, for Joseph Ettedgui
Designers: Peter Clarke, Joseph Ottewill, Aaron Lawton

Following on from the Brompton Cross stair, we were invited to design and install a stair for Josephs flagship Sloane Street store.

The structural engineers diagram of the stair, which was a complex network of lines resolving all the forces involved and specified minimum rod diameters in each situation, included some faily rudimentary suggestions for connections, mainly involving welding. Our responsibility was to undertake a detailed site survey, design and specify components that could be produced to aerospace standards, and manage the installation of the stair and ballustrade, all within 4 months.
