Balustrade inspiration

Feb 22, 2018    |    Balustrades

At SRS Group Luke encourages his team to regularly be seeking inspiration from the highest-standard work created around the globe. This keeps us relevant and able to deliver client concepts that push boundaries – which obviously is important in any line of work.

We recently stumbled across this stunner of a balustrade named 555 Triplex Montreal Stairs from Montreal-based Taktik Design and we encouraged our fabrication team to do some brainstorming around its design and construction. Simple, yes? We all love the minimalistic approach to this design and think it really would be at home in either a residential or commercial setting.

This balustrade appears to be created from flat bar mild steel, with a black powder coat finish. Whether matched with a soft timber (similar to the image) for a contemporary aesthetic or teamed with an industrial-style charcoal chequer plate or even concrete, this design is so flexible and a real standout.

When our fabricators reviewed the image they spoke of the endless possibilities you can have with a design like this one – square and round bar from stainless steel or even by incorporating timber in the design – perhaps for the handrail. The great thing these days is for any balustrade; you can now add a pop of colour to truly make a design your own. In NZ you can powder coat in any colour that Dulux offers, often finished to perfection with a finish of matt, satin or gloss.

Our fabricators finished off their thinking around this style by speaking about laser-designed cut infills as another possible option.

We have pulled together a selection of balustrades in a similar, but slightly different vein that we are just loving too. Hope this gets your creative juices flowing as much as it has in our SRS Group workshop.
