Summary: When a stone is well selected, properly detailed, carefully made and built with precision, not only will it look fantastic, it will add true value and form a lasting legacy. This beautiful oval cantilevered stone staircase demands attention from visitors at an exclusive hotel in Berkshire, as they lead down to an underground cinema. Designed, crafted and installed by A F Jones Stonemasons. The staircase features Crossland Hill, York stone which is highly specific, rebated interconnecting treads, accompanied by bronze treads on each step nose. The stairwell is complimented by a variety of different quarry stone on the wall to create a varied mix of colour size and appearance. The rigid wall contrasts the smooth finish of the steps to create a fine result.
We deliver fine architectural stonemasonry – from design to realisation – for new builds, stone conservation, and interiors.
