Wood Awards 2019: Shortlisted for Small Project

Shortlisted for the 2019 Wood Awards, this 16th Century Grade II* Listed Old House has received a modern twist with a new spiralling staircase. The spiral staircase is made from Russian Birch plywood, supplied by TTF member Altripan UK Ltd. This wood species is known for its warm light colour, excellent strength, and durability, making it a good choice for this historic building.

 

The staircase provides outward thrust which is transferred through the treads and risers into the vertical planes of the surrounding building. The walls are formed with vertical planks of Birch plywood, aligning with the treads of the stair which rest on the top edge of the wall planks below.

 

The entire kit was assembled from bottom-up and as the next wall plank was fixed in place, the treads were locked in position to provide a strong and stable connection, bracing the walls of this historic stair tower to the modern Birch plywood spiral.
