The existing steps to the sea had all but vanished a long time ago. Arc were asked to design new steps to allow direct access to the beach front. The steps lead directly from the garden are robust enough to resist the ravages of the sea and to look good for a long time to come.

 

The final design is made from 20mm Stainless Steel plate with 8mm treads folded to form a profile which sheds water and sand while also allowing the impact of waves to break through, rather than upon, the structure.

 

The steps sweep down in an elegant arc while cantilevering from above to gently touch the existing footing. The client was thrilled with the end result which also features a lower handrail making access simpler for smaller members of the family.
