Simple lines and modest design unite, offering a beautifully understated stairway.

Rowlands Office Fit-out Project: (2009) AM60, 42 Albert St, Brisbane

A refreshingly simple solution for inter-floor connectivity, a basic commercial mono-stringer, with clean glass balustrade, spans between floors, highlighting the simple geometry of the treads and risers. Solving head clearances beneath the lower flight saw the introduction of unobtrusive seating, the soft furnishings adding colour relief.

Stringer Construction: Commercial grade painted steel folded tread plate mono-stringers including landing support and column (MS1)

Treads: Pre-finished 42mm Brushbox tread/riser assemblies with rebated 75mm Latham 765S “Sparkling Black” non-slip nosing strips

Balustrade: Satin stainless steel 50x12mm flat bar stanchion with clasps, 12mm clear toughened glass in-fill panels, Continuous 38.1mm CHS stainless steel handrail (C6).
