Unique Approach to Spiral Stair Tread Support
Magic is happening in the building. We are using a unique metal tread support system that is our design. This is something we’ve been waiting for the opportunity to do, and as we had hoped - the outcome is more sculptural than typical. The tread supports looked like a spine from a prehistoric being before they were erected and bolted to the center column. As is shown in the pictures, you can see Christian putting the treads on the supports for the first time. He is testing that they are level and that all the stairs are lining up correctly. He must also ensure the spiral lets you out in the right spot on the upper balcony. To build a spiral, not only must you have a vision, but you also need to remember your geometry and algebra before the magic can really happen. I love the look of the stair right now, before we add the railing. This is a sculpture in and of itself, and the rail will bring a completely different yet equally striking effect!
