J&M Davidson Store, Mount Street, London

The feature staircase at the J&M Davidson Store is a modern interpretation of a traditional cantilever stone staircase. The treads themselves are precast concrete that is clad in terrazzo. Each tread is tied to the adjacent wall with two pins to prevent them rotating and allow the treads to work structurally in torsion. The balustrade structure was carefully designed to provide a very light and slender appearance whilst maintaining its required strength and stiffness.

Completed 2015.
