About Us

Bisca designs and creates beautiful, bespoke staircases and balustrades, transforming interior spaces with imaginative design and quality materials. Each commission is designed precisely to a client’s brief to be a work of art in both form and function. As a specialist, bespoke staircase designer, Bisca is involved with every part of the design and build process, offering expert knowledge and the benefit of 25 years of industry experience.

Bisca offers tailored design and manufacture options for professionals such as Architects, Interior Designers and Developers, as well as working directly with clients to bring their dreams to fruition. Commissioning a bespoke staircase is not something to be undertaken lightly. Both aesthetic and structural implications need careful consideration. The correct choice of materials is also essential; rich timber, classic stone, contemporary glass or tactile forged steel come together to create a staircase as unique as the property and customer it is commissioned for. All materials are sourced on an individual project-by-project basis.

What services do you provide?

"Design, Craft and Install - Staircases, Balustrades and Architectural Features for interiors and exteriors"

How would you describe your style?

"Bespoke, hand-crafted, individual  – a perfect marriage of functionality and beautiful form. Designs created to last without ageing physically or aesthetically, in perfect harmony with their surroundings, using sustainable materials and methods, where possible.

Bisca creates all styles of staircase including helical, cantilevered, spiral and straight, using stone, timber, and painted treads with a range of hand-formed and forged uprights using bronze and steel. The name BISCA is an acronym of Brass, Iron, Steel, Copper & Aluminium, which were commonly used in early creations. Today we could swap the B for Bronze, S for Stone and C for Corian – Bisca is happy to develop designs around any materials that clients want to see in their staircase."

Please describe a recently completed project or tell us about the bespoke service that you offer

"Bisca designs, creates and installs award-winning, bespoke staircases and balustrades, built entirely in the company’s own workshop in North Yorkshire. Each commission is the handiwork of a dedicated team of multiskilled craftspeople, who combine traditional materials including metalwork, blacksmithing, cabinetry, joinery and leatherworking with precision engineered designs. A feature staircase adds a ‘wow factor’ to a home - be it a new stair design, or a renovation, replacement balustrade or handrail. A striking, well-designed staircase adds value and sets the tone for the whole house, creating that all-important first impression.  

Recent commissions include a grand sweeping staircase in a modern-day interpretation of Art Nouveau style, a cantilevered staircase using reclaimed Greenhart timber from Hartlepool docks and a multi-flight staircase in Corian for a mews house in Central London. For contemporary schemes, Bisca uses glass structurally to create floating staircases. Where possible Bisca sources sustainable materials."
