When award-winning business, Centenary Lounge needed a stunning feature staircase for their new flagship outlet in Worcester, they called upon the design and build skills of staircase specialists, Spiral UK.
Centenary Lounge is a unique collection of cafe-tearooms which recapture the glamour of the 1930s railways, with beautifully designed interiors inspired by the golden age of travel.
This is the latest successful project completed by Spiral UK, who have secured a string of high-profile new business wins in the last year. These include feature staircases for the Sony Interactive head office, for the Salesforce Tower in London and for the new Launchpad Building at Falmouth University, as well as escape staircases for Exeter University and the Dyson Campus in Wiltshire.
Centenary Lounge’s Founder, Aasia Baig, describes the brief for this latest project:
“We serve great quality food in beautiful Art-Deco inspired settings. The helical staircase that we commissioned from Spiral UK was to be a centrepiece for our new Centenary Lounge Worcester. Our vision was to have a stunning, sweeping staircase that would echo the grand style of the classic ocean liner, The Queen Mary.”
Spiral UK’s Managing Director, Eric Nicholls, explains how his company brought this vision to life:
“It was a real privilege for our team to work on such a prestigious project and with such an inspiring brief. We were able to use top quality materials that truly reflect the luxurious style and superb craftsmanship of the Art Deco era.”
“The staircase is crafted in steel with closed risers and treads fashioned from white washed oak, while the client’s walnut clad balustrade has a stainless steel handrail which helps to accentuate the beautiful curve and flow of the staircase. This design concept is carried through to the upper floor landing, where we have created an elegant stainless steel balustrade with an exquisite walnut handrail. We like to think that this classic staircase would indeed have looked perfectly at home on The Queen Mary!”
Aasia Baig adds:
“The number of customers who have seen the new staircase and simply said “Wow!” tells me that it has hit exactly the right note for our business. We are really thrilled with the finished result.”
