Mosman of Steel

This dramatic staircase was designed as the sculptural centrepiece of this Mosman home by designers Meacham Nockles McQualter.

Don McQualter’s original vision was to create a grand sculptural element which connected all three levels of this Mosman home.

Realising the architectural intent on this project was no mean feat from a building point of view. The staircase was designed to be finished as blackened steel (rather than painted) which is a beautiful, but unforgiving finish to work with. To achieve the material beauty of the design, it was essential to complete the stair assembly without multiple welds and connection joints as they would be highly visible and would detract from the beauty of the finish.
