Cantilevered Staircases in Stone
The first stone cantilevered staircase constructed in England is believed to be Inigo Jones' Tulip Staircase in the Queen's House at Greenwich 1629-35. It is based on the work of Andrea Palladio who, 60 years earlier, had illustrated various forms of spiral staircases in the first book of his Quattro Libri. Since then the stone staircase design has become increasingly lighter and more elegant. We are continuing this beautiful tradition and hope to keep it alive for many years to come. Our mission is to evolve the design of these stone staircases even farther. By learning from the old masters and a close working relationship between our craftsman, designers and engineers. This is enabling us to create stone staircases that would have been impossible in the past.
