Catch up with the latest series of Grand Designs on Chanel 4 and watch S17 Episode 2 to see our latest perf project showcased on the nation's favourite BAFTA winning property program.

The residential property on last night's episode belongs to neurologists Penny Talelli and Mark Edwards who combined their love of old and contemporary architecture to transform their North London home.

The star of the show was the unmissable steel staircase sculptured from our Perftec range. Its perforated design allows light to flow freely through the area to form interesting shadows on the surrounding walls. When standing from afar, you’re able to see straight through the staircase and this adds an element of openness to the entire space.

Penny Talelli who owns the property said: “The staircase is the best thing about the house. It is a piece of art and it throws fantastic shades on the wall. I love that it brings light into the house even on a dark day.” And this helped by the bright yellow colour of the staircase, which Penny commented on to say: “the colour was a spontaneous decision and once we'd thought of it, we couldn't think about anything else. It adds to the industrial style.”

The overlay of the perforated stairs with the balustrade also adds texture and creates a moire effect, further enhancing the interest of the sculpture. Amir Zinaburg from Design + Weld was contracted to fabricate the staircase and commented: “the perforated balustrades supplied by Cadisch MDA appear as though they’ve been made up with different panels when in fact they’re one complete piece with different holes. This makes our part much easier and provides greater accuracy, as we don’t have to play around with different panels.”

We worked in close partnership with Design & Weld on this project. It required great attention to detail and precise planning to ensure all the different panels were supplied correctly and to a tight deadline, ensuring that filming production was in no way compromised.

We are seeing the use of perforated stairs becoming increasingly popular within residential properties, and this latest project has put a new twist the contemporary design. It is elegant, minimalist and has timeless simplicity.
