Can you spot the Genesis Enclosure elevator? This project is a perfect example of an accessibility application that blends in with its environment. The champagne aluminum extrusions closely match the beige siding on the building providing an aesthetically pleasing installation.

The treehouses are a part of Microsoft’s “outdoor districts” which are connected to buildings around its Redmond campus.  The company built the treehouses after a recent employee survey found many workers would like to work outdoors more if they could.  A Garaventa, Genesis, VPL, was included in the design allowing for two of the three treehouses to be accessible to all employees.

The lifts are two-stop Garaventa Genesis vertical platform lifts with factory-
