When The Crown Estate and Oxford Properties re-established the historic St James’s Market with 210,000 sq.ft. of offices alongside luxury lifestyle retail in Central London, Unique Fabrications were brought in to create a show stopping cantilever staircase.
For this technically challenging brief, Corian® was chosen because of its smooth, tactile appearance and its high impact endurance.
Designed by Make Architects, London, this impressive staircase spans seven floors and uses 280 sheets of Glacier White Corian® encasing the structural framework and joined as seamlessly as possible. Over 400 separate CAD drawings were required for the Corian® sheets alone, each one was precision cut around every stair and invisible joints were fabricated to create a smooth flow from one floor to another.
“This fabulous building on iconic Regent Street needed something special to complement the new office spaces, eateries and luxury lifestyle retail. Corian® was the obvious choice primarily because this incredible staircase had to appear as one smooth, flowing design that was as beautiful as it was practical.”
