walnut & steel Staircase

Totnes, Devon


Completed in 2016. WoCo worked alongside one of Totnes’ most established architectural firms – Harrison Sutton – to create this unique staircase for an exciting new-build house in the heart of the town centre. Our design and make approach combined steel, walnut and brass to create a uniquely elegant and impressive open-tread staircase with a bridge link over to connect the first floor spaces. We used our experience of digital fabrication to create the structural elements in laser-cut hot-rolled steel, which we then combined with hand crafted walnut treads in our Devon workshop. The subtle addition of brass pinstripes brings a simple and beautiful accent to the overall aesthetic.

The design was meticulously planned and organised to work alongside and around other trades during various stages of the new-build construction on site. The result is a fantastic example of our approach to design and make – inventive and robust, the stair will hold court in the house for many years to come.
