This building is my favourite – Designed by Seymour Harris with a rather interesting history
It is located in the new Forest near Beaulieu
The owner had an unfortunate accident and was confined to a wheelchair
The brief was to provide a wheelchair lift for him to get around but without feeling like a wheelchair lift
Our design was unique – a transparent lift car allowing him perfect views of the countryside every time he used the lift, it was almost as though the lift wasn’t there. Like floating on air
It was only after the design team had failed to get anyone to design and make this lift that they finally contacted us and we began outline proposals.
The result is very impressive and achieved the required effect
We have often heard from our clients that ‘everyone else said it was not possible ‘ A lot of fake news from companies trying to promote their own products
