Requirement: Bespoke residential disabled access solution
The Platform Lift Company was approached by Cundall, building services and environmental engineers, to design a bespoke, residential platform lift to be installed within an upper floor of one of the world’s most prestigious residential developments – ‘One Hyde Park’, London.
The challenge was to customise both the exterior and interior of the platform lift to achieve a seamless fit within such a high quality, residential development.
Solution: Bespoke platform lift design
Following a comprehensive site survey, The Platform Lift Company’s in house design team embarked on the creation of a unique design to complement the “Candy & Candy” exclusive residential interior.
An elegant free-standing solution was selected that only required fixing off the doors apertures at each floor level. A further advantage of this approach was that there was no pit required to house motors or control systems.
The free-standing shaft was powder coated and doors manufactured from stainless steel and trimmed to match the décor. The platform lift floor was finished in stone to fully achieve the “Candy & Candy” vision.
Benefits: Seamless architectural integration
The Platform Lift Company has unique experience working with some of the UK’s premier architects, designing and installing disabled access platform and stair lifts in the home setting. Combine this with a design team well versed in creating bespoke solutions and you have the perfect combination.
The result the team achieved was a disabled access solution that blended perfectly with the high quality finish of this exclusive residential development and was installed with the minimum of disruption.
