The White House - Bent Glass Staircase
The White House – All Class & Almost All Glass
This beautifully designed and crafted circular staircase, is the crowning jewel of this spectacular, privately owned, water front property, located in Miami, USA.
With the exception of the staircase stringers and handrail, the materials used in its construction are predominantly made up of glass, including the multi-laminated stair treads, which clearly demonstrates the strength, durability and versatility that glass has to offer, not to mention the added benefit of allowing light to fill the entrance to this elegantly designed house, which would otherwise be obscured.
The completed Staircase stands testament to the combined efforts of many, with the team at Bella Stairs, LLC, working along side Interior Designer – Nathalie Ohayon from Renovaid Interiors who designed the Staircase layout, thus ensuring the design vision was delivered. Glasshape contributed further by providing digital field measuring services, 3D laser scanning the staircase whilst it was under construction. This data was processed by Glasshape’s in-house design team, 3D modelling the as-built structure and designing our signature TemperShield® 14.28mm (9/16″) low iron, bent, toughened (tempered) and laminated glass to ensure a perfect fit.
