Hello Kevin,

Here is a general plan of a curved stair that should work within your constraints.

project02v01.pngImage Enlarger

The objectives of the design are:

– Get the stair close to the design of the photo you posted

– Try to  keeping the start as open as possible to the front door, that is not turning it’s back on the entrance

– Keep the stair within the 3mx3m open stair well.

The first step  is closer than 1m80 to the outer wall but the stair will not be facing away from the front door.

I can turn the stair faster and move the first step away from the front door, like your architects drawing but this will put the stair more or less back to the front door and the living room.

With the design you have chosen, in my opinion, the whole stair should be curved. Adding newels will break the movement and flow of the stair. Of course this means that the stair will be more expensive, so it might depend on your budget.

As with everything it’s always a question of compromise.

If this plan is OK with you we can move forwards and draw the details.

Have a look at the project and I’ll call you so that we can discuss how we move forwards.

All the best,

Ness

Thank you

This seems to work

 

I would like the stairs to start 600m in from the right hand side of the gallery

and would like the stairs as much like the picture I attached last as possible with the “Grand Piano” bottom shaped step and with the newel post being set behind (as per the picture)

and with the right hand side of the 2nd to bottom step kicking out (like the picture)

 

basically I would like my stairs to as much like the picture as possible

how quickly can this be done ?  

 

Best Regards

Hi Kevin,

It’s possible to make the stair curve up like this:

project01v04.pngImage Enlarger

Advantage being a simpler design and more elegant curve , disadvantage is that the stair back is seen from the living room.

all the best

Thank you Ness

 

if you have created these stairs without using 500mm of the landing could you use the original design and still give the desired 1800mm from door (Closed) to foot of stairs?

otherwise I have attached the photo I thought I had sent you with the marble to show the design the architect was trying to replicate

Hi Kevin,

Here’s an idea that could work.

project01v02.pngImage Enlarger

The same stair can be built using newel posts and flaired start.

project01v03.pngImage Enlarger

If the landing area can be moved back 500mm the start of the stair could also move back further.

What do you think?

All the best,

Ness

Hi Ness

We have a problem,

We need to be at least 500mm back from the front end of the gallery

however I can allow the stairs to eat into the gallery landing by 500mm

however to achieve this it can not be central. when looking from the front door the stairs would need to start on the top right hand side and then curve down to ground level

keeping the stairs a modest 1000mm wide and just flairing out at the bottom

so basically strait stairs that curve at the bottom

I will send some drawings / pictures to give some idea

I have also attached the house plans again

this might require a telephone conversation ?

 

Best Regards

 

Kevin

Hi Kevin, 

I’ve sent the plans to our suppliers, so let’s wait till we get fixed on a specific supplier to set the design details to the way he will want to build.

All the best,

Ness
