Caulfield Wright Architects were winners in the Interiors category of the Natural Stone Awards 2022, run by the Stone Federation Great Britain, for our feature stairs in this new contemporary family home in Malahide, Co. Dublin. 

We will present and discuss the project  at the Natural Stone Show in the London Excel this coming June to be hosted by Susannah Streeter of the BBC.  The project is now part of an online vote for the Industry Choice Award.

The Natural Stone Awards is a biennial award set up to celebrate the best of natural stone construction projects from across the industry. The awards were celebrated at a ceremony at the Leonardo Royal Hotel Tower Bridge, London on Friday 2 December 2022 and were presented by Charlie Luxton, architectural designer and television presenter.

The new build house is situated on an elevated site with spectacular and uninterrupted views of the Dublin Coastline. Our clients were keen to commission certain features in their home, that were original in design, of exceptional and enduring quality, and highly crafted. We drew on the long tradition of cantilevered stone staircases in Ireland but with an emphasis on contemporary detailing. This is juxtaposed with a contemporary balustrade with slender steel verticals set into the stone with an oval French Oak handrail tying it together.
