We're not just oak!

We thought we would share with you a recent project for a private client:  

Our client is the owner of a Mid Century Modern house in the UK Midlands.

When completed in 1957 the house was opened to the public for a period as an example of modular design and contemporary living. It was also given a national Civic Trust Award  for its construction, design and layout, whcih is based around modules of  four-foot cubes.

Having been rented out for over 20 years it is now undergoing a sensitive restoration programme. This exterior staircase, deck and balcony was therefore made to an exact replica of the 1957 original, using tropical iroko, with balau for the decking and powder coated steel for the balustrades.
