Comments from the Architects’ Journal following the award of the AJ Specification staircase of the year 2019.

It’s fantastic – a seamless collaborative effort between Architect, engineer and craftspeople. They clearly showed where the collaboration had taken it, and it just got cleverer and cleverer. You could see that refinement going on, and that story continues inspire others. They’ve gone to extraordinary lengths to perfect it. Everything is explicit; you can see how it works. It makes you smile.’
