White Painted Helix Staircase
LOCATION: Manhattan, NY
DESIGN: White Painted Helix Staircase
Serett fabricated and installed this custom helix staircase for an art gallery in Noho. Designed in collaboration with the client to accommodate their budget the staircase is constructed of steel and finished with an oil based semi gloss white paint. A challenge faced during installation was the structural integrity of the original building. Dating back to the 1850’s the structure retained its original yellow pine wood joists. With 50% of its original structural integrity intact an excessive amount of bracing at the wood beams was needed to accommodate the extra stress.
