Chesney's successfully designed and delivered an architectural feature that sets a benchmark for the entire property - Private client


When Chesneys were approached to design and manufacture a limestone cantilevered staircase for the entrance hall of a new English country house, the brief was to create a focal point that was both graceful and impressive. We suggested a smooth soffit tread design which would lend itself well to a plain material such as limestone and would create a beautiful continuous curve to the underside of the staircase that could be appreciated from the Entrance Hall below.

A simple geometric oval comprising some 200 individual pieces of stone and marble provided a unique centerpiece to the matching limestone flooring and the same material was used for a series of classical stone door frames which provide an elegant entry to the Dining and Drawing rooms beyond. A Portuguese limestone was used throughout with St Augustine marble as the accent marble for the design to the floor and the flagstones.
