The bronze gate hardware matches the door and frame while providing contrast. Antique white panels have been installed in the accordion gate to match the rustic elegance of the stone wall.

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.

Centerpiece LULA Enclosure wins October POM

DSCN3418This month, we are sending our appreciation and support to Handi-Lift Inc. of Carlstadt, New Jersey.  Congratulations to Bob Grigorov, James Boydston and the rest of the great professionals at Handi-Lift.  Their installation of a LULA Elevator DSCN3481 (640x360)at the Mediterraneo restaurant in White Plains, NY has earned them the Garaventa Lift Project of the Month for October, 2017.

DSCN3449 (640x360)The elevator is a three-stop unit installed right in the middle of this new modern and upscale restaurant.  It is a very impressive installation.  The location of the elevator within the establishment ensures it is seen as an architectural centerpiece.  The elevator was supplied with a custom-colored aluminum and glass enclosure by Garaventa.  The elevator cab is also aluminum and glass.

The top landing is connected to the top seating area by a beautiful catwalk.  The view from this area is spectacular, since all of the exterior walls are made from tinted glass panels.
