We were approached by a private client who had already built a lift shaft next to his staircase and was now looking to have a lift installed. We went to the site in Whitecliff, Poole to measure the internal structure and discuss his vision and exactly what he was looking for. Whitecliff is a sought after area and overlooks both Whitecliff Park as well as Poole Harbour. The majority of the houses around the park are very modern with glass being a prominent feature across the whole Whitecliff-Lilliput-Sandbanks area. He wanted a lift that would match the aesthetics of his home and so wanted a style that was light, airy as well as being modern.
We fitted a lift within the prebuilt lift shaft with the home lift travelling a total distance of 5970mm across 3 floors with a maximum load of 300kg. The internal cabin measures 850mm x 1100mm with 800mm glass swing doors on each floor. The door structure was painted white to match the colour of the lift shaft with the glass within the doors specially made to include a wave-like pattern to mirror the surroundings vistas. On the upper floor there was glass on 3 sides of the lift to allow as much natural light as possible into the lift shaft. This allows the lift to act as a light well throughout the property. The lift was fitted with adjacent entry on 2 sides. This home lift was fitted within 2 weeks.
