Block staircase with wooden steps and glass railing panels


  • Wood used: Solid French Oak
  • Type of balustrade: Clear, toughened and laminated glass

When we met the clients at the Grand Designs show in 2014, they fell in love with our wonderfully engineered block staircase. Hence the block staircase is quite straight forward detail wise, the installment went quite flawless. 


The end result


A beautiful staircase with glass on the landing which really gives the house a stunning open feel and look.


What our client had to say




Smet installed our staircase after a rigorous and creative design process. Not just an 'off the peg' copy of the previous work, but a stair whose style, function and detailing is exactly tailored to our vision for our self build project. Installation worked precisely around our schedules and was very efficient.


Most importantly, the way Smet dealt with minor glitches and snagging was very straightforward. There were no installation issues and the result exceeds our highest expectations and sets the whole tone of our house.


We could not be happier with the result and would not hesitate to recommend Smet.
