This is a revamp of late Victorian staircase by David Ross and Leander Angerer. This stairs use floating marble plinth as the first step of this stairs, creating a natural but modern effect to the stairs. The balusters are replaced by tennis racket string, sewed into the handrail. You can pluck it to create a beautiful sound while climb up the stairs.
Tennis racket string sewn into the hand rail replaces the ballusters while a marble plinth replaces the first step and trellis work frame. Handrails were “bent” to remove extraneous parts – opening up the landing areas. High gloss epoxy floor paint, normally found in factories, creates a continuous pure white ribbon from top floor to bottom.
