Maritimo House

The brief was to create a centerpiece of functional artwork within a heritage listed Brisbane residential Home. Two staircases were constructed with Corian® cladding.


Corian® was chosen for several reasons:

1. Complex thermal forming.
2. Seamless hidden glue joints.
3. Workability of the product surrounding custom profiling elements allowing a very organic and tactile staircase to be created, and in particular the splayed and twisted handrail / balustrade capping.
4. Durability of product.
5. Superior product giving a look and feel not achievable by any other material.

The stair structure was constructed from CNC cut mass timber elements, fabricated in-house, which was the first time this style of staircase structure has been done by Arden. The accuracy of the CNC cut sub-structure allowed the pre-formed Corian® balustrade elements to attach to the staircase with little to no site modification works. With a staircase of the shape and profile, accuracy from the start to end was paramount.

Beautiful in function and form, Corian® has surpassed the client’s expectations thanks to the processing potential of Corian® especially surrounding the tight internal radius bends to the balustrade and the thermal twisting of the handrail capping.
