Whilst restoring this elegant Queensland home to its former beauty, the owners decided to take it to the next level with the addition of a stunning yet discrete modern lift and glass shaft.
Designed to make the most of the lovely surrounds, the E2 was fitted with two glass walls, glass landing and cabin doors and a glass shaft to maximise all viewing possibilities (a glass panel was also provided alongside the landing doors so the running gear was visible).
This design concept also has the advantage of minimising any sense of claustrophobia. For perfect continuity, the landing and cabin doors were painted in the same powdercoat colour (RAL 9005) as the shaft. Inside the cabin, a combination of Similinox skinplate (F12PPS) and brushed stainless steel gave an elegant and classy feel.
To ensure adequate bracing/stiffness was provided for the shaft, cross bracing members were included, an effective but also striking detail. Other small but important finishing details included outside cladding to the cabin, roof covering, a security keypad access and our new blue coloured buttons.
With a contrasting blend between the old and the new and with easy access from the garage to the home, everything’s been taken care of.
