Scope of Project:
New Cantilevered Staircase, Rear Staircase and Paving
This newly constructed private residence, situated in the heart of Jersey highlights the versatility of natural Portland Stone. Jordans Basebed was used throughout this beautiful Georgian residence and is featured in a variety of applications, including 1000m² of stone flooring running throughout the property and three meticulously designed cantilevered staircases.
Stewart Design were appointed for the new build. CAD design modelling, production information and full working drawings were produced and supplied. This meant that the stone for the project could be manufactured in the works and then fixed on the site of the build. "This stunning three flight stair is the culmination of the quality and simplicity of traditional set stone coupled with outstanding design" (Andy Maclean, Expert Stone Designer from Stewart Design).
Albion Stone provided the Portland Jordans Basebed block to Boden and Ward who carried out the detailed cutting, masonry and on-site fixing for the new build.
Boden and Ward quoted "We think the results speak for themselves". This award winning new build demonstrates how a traditional, robust stone infuses quality and helps transform a functional framework like a cantilevered staircase into a feature. Set stone floors were laid in what seems to be a minimalistic design yet when looking in further detail there is a subtle yet thoughtful arrangement of the paving stones. The colour of the traditional Portland stone helps form the appearance of space and encourages more light to travel around the property. "Simplicity, coupled with the beautiful quality of natural stone laid to such a high standard, cannot but help but to ensure an outstanding interior" (Natural Stone Source Book, 2015/2016)
