We were approached by a private client who wanted a home lift installed in their house in Torquay. The client wanted a lift that would sit in the middle of their wooden staircase and would future-proof his house. The client had designed their house in an Art Deco style and so wanted a lift that wouldn't look out of place with this distinctive appearance and would actually add to its design. In addition the lift should act as a light well, allowing light to flood from the top floor all the way down to the ground floor.
We installed a lift within its own fully glazed structure, the lift total travel was 5.8 metres across 3 floors. The lift was made to fit the exact size of the stairwell to maximise the size of the lift, the cabin measured 1200mm x 1000mm allowing ample room for passengers as well as suitcases. The client chose a gloss black finish for the structure and automatic swing doors with large glass windows to match the house's aesthetics. The internal cabin was finished in brushed stainless steel with an Art Deco lighting design. The flooring of the lift was laid with the same stone tiles as the rest of the house's ground floor so there was seamless transition from landing to lift which can be seen in the photos below
The lift was fitted and installed within a fortnight.
