Bisca design and manufacture one off staircases for clients who believe in investing in the longevity of beautiful commissions. Bisca has built an enviable reputation for creating beautiful, handcrafted and high quality commissions that will always be a pleasure to look at and withstand the test of time.


Richard McLane, Bisca’s Design Director is a time served blacksmith from a North Yorkshire farming family. He graduated from Northumbria University with a first class honours degree in design before setting up Bisca in 1994.

During his time at University, Richard experimented with combining elements of steel, glass and timber into his designs, even though tutors preferred students to specialise in a single medium. It is this expertise and skilful design of interfaces between mediums that transforms a Bisca staircase or balustrade into an architectural masterpiece.

Bisca take a sympathetic and understanding approach to restoration projects using both traditional and contemporary materials for a seamless cohesion between old and new. The measure of a great commission is one that fits its environment. It is extremely important to us that every staircase or balustrade we design is timeless and completely integrates into the character of your property, regardless of period.

We are proud of our Helmsley workshop and our people. The diverse nature of what we do dictates our craftsmen be multi-skilled individuals, fearlessly competent in metalwork, cabinet-making, blacksmithing, leatherworking, welding and polishing. Their wealth of experience allows them to marry century-old skills with modern technology and methods in the creation of your staircase or balustrade.

What you don’t see is as important to us as what you do see. Engineering elegance and intelligent design integrate your commission seamlessly into its surroundings. Clean lines and discreet interfaces transform architecture into art.
