One of the most popular staircases among designers. The staircase that is a feast for the eyes. It rotates in perfect symmetry and reveals its beauty and complexity from above. The spiral staircase.
Leonardo da Vinci also has a spiral staircase to his name, which is in a 16th century castle called Chambord. They are two spiral staircases in the shape of a castle tower. You can enter the stairs from both sides without having to meet each other. Someone was very attached to his privacy there. Another well-known spiral staircase is that in the Vatican in Rome, by architect Guiseppe Momo. This was added in 1932 and gives a breathtaking wide spiral effect from above.
One of our larger spiral staircases are these two steel giants in the New Logic center in Tilburg. A building with many straight and clean lines. Perpendicular to it are these two spiral staircases, 9 meters high and over 8000 kilos in weight. Because of the LID method they have a sculpture-like appearance. Add the round shapes and you have a real eye-catcher. This stairs are set up in a grand way and are located in impressive buildings. But the spiral staircase is not limited to large formats. Even in a smaller version, a spiral staircase can be expressed perfectly.
The flowing, round shape gives the room a softer look. With materials and colors you can make it as modern and sleek as you want.
A good example is the spiral staircase for the new Pauw store in Laren. A relatively narrow space where the spiral staircase, in addition to functionality, provides a modern and spacious feeling. A playful, single twist, entirely in keeping with the interior.
A spiral staircase can also stand out due to the fencing. For one of our customers we have expressed their preference for music in the form of steel musical notes. Gracefully incorporated into the balustrade of the spiral staircase.
This organic, sleek staircase with flowing lines is of the same caliber. Strong in its simplicity, but with constructive, complex details that cannot be seen at first sight. Because it is in the middle of the room, the stairs should be beautifully finished on all sides. This is possible with the help of our LID construction method. View the details of this project here.

With a special staircase you can make a statement in your house. The balustrade and / or rail support also plays a major part. A beautifully shaped balustrade is the cherry on the cake. It was initially developed for safety but also offers many possibilities for an additional piece of design.
The balustrade and handrail follow the staircase upwards and with this shape the designer can play beautifully. From gracefully curly, straight and industrial to its own dynamic game of shapes. A balustrade can be made in the same style of the staircase, or not. Material and color ensure contrast. For example, the natural wood of a staircase justifies the modern element of the steel fence. Glass balustrades are currently popular. They leave enough light, are modern in appearance and give safety.
We have selected some of our balustrades:
