For multimillion-dollar homes, you need to design the best luxury home elevators. That is the same for high-end commercial projects. Elevator design and type in some luxury buildings are inconsistent with the other features in the project.
Many architects include numerous luxury features within the design of a luxury home. However, when it comes to the elevator design, it pales in comparison to all other unique and glamorous surroundings.
We have visited many high-end buildings, and the owner demanded a luxurious and extensive all-glass cab with a glass ceiling installed in the middle of the area. Unfortunately, when we look at the drawings, we find the designer has considered a tiny home lift. It does not allow us to provide the desired elevator that the customer has in mind.
Therefore, we are left with limited options, such as a small partial glass cab or possibly a cab without glass, that by no means matches the other features within the project. One factor that causes this happening is the initial design of the foundation. For example, the pit is not deep enough to accommodate our under-platform door operator, giving the cab a beautifully clean design, no bulky equipment above the cab, only a gorgeous glass ceiling.
For this feature, we need at least a 30″ to 48″ pit depth where we can hide the automatic door operating equipment beneath the platform.
It makes much more sense to have automatic doors in the elevator instead of manual doors when the rest of the home or building has numerous top-of-the-line features in every corner. For this reason, we would like to mention some of the best luxury home elevators that architects could consider for a high-end building or a luxury residence.
Round glass elevator – One of the best luxury home elevators to design is the aesthetically appealing design of a perfectly round glass elevator with curved doors, making it the most desirable design to place between stairways. A unique feature in Roys Rise luxury elevator is our under-platform door operator. This beautiful door design allows a glass ceiling without any obstructions, and the elevator can receive all the natural light from the surroundings. This type of elevator is an excellent solution for designing curved stairways.
Square full glass elevator – A full laminated safety glass square cab with a glass ceiling, floor, and automatic glass doors are an excellent choice for modern luxury projects. There are numerous glass types to select from, for example, low-iron, colored glass, and textures. You can match them with polished stainless steel or bronze framing with Swarovski crystal lights inside the glass ceiling and glass floor. Many modern designs featuring glass and other shiny materials can be an ideal match for our modern square glass luxury elevators.
Special designed elevator – Our award-winning elevators are unique and designed specifically according to the customer’s needs. Architects may have a dream design in mind yet may not be confident enough to give a role to the elevator as they do to another aesthetic part of their design. We assure our customers to freely design whatever they imagine fitting the other parts of the building.
When the elevator size, shape, or movement is entirely creative, and no one has designed it before, we will do it. Our talented and capable designers and engineers always welcome these challenges as their next great award-winning mission. In addition to custom residential elevators, we also design and install unique commercial glass elevators.
Birdcage elevator (Wrought Iron elevator) – Custom-designed with a modern transformation to the authentic vintage style lifts from the past, transforming elevator design for a new era. Birdcage elevators present a part of a vintage legacy dating back to the 20th century. The antique elements such as the ornamental steel frame, open latticework, and the domelike-shaped car tops are all design combinations that reflect an era when elevators were on the rise to becoming a transportation necessity of the future and likewise the main feature of artistic design.
Antique elevator – Retaining all the charm of the same elevator of the last century, and at the same time, fully loaded with modern-day safety features and lift equipment. Fast forward to the 21st century, and the elevator lift technology available today has transformed elevator design. Now it is possible to have the best of both worlds. A vintage lift maintaining a sense of history will take you back in time. It can now be combined with modern lift equipment, ensuring a smooth ride to the top with the latest technology.
All our vintage lifts are custom designed, made with the highest quality of materials, superior ornamentals, and handcrafted precision. We include all the vintage-inspired details that create the feeling of elegance synonymous with homes and buildings of the past.
Many luxury projects are designed beautifully in absolutely every corner of the project. The question may arise, “What if placing one of those best luxury home elevators in the middle of the house, between two huge luxury symmetry stairways?” Just suppose a moment when entering the building’s main entrance, you find a luxury full glass elevator, comparable to a luxury car in the middle of the room. Right in the center, between the luxury stairways and beautiful interior design, sits this spectacular masterpiece of an elevator that amplifies the entire view of luxury. If this were the case, you would not have to hide the elevator in a corner with a fully enclosed shaft, which is now rightfully at the center stage.
There should defiantly be a difference between the elevator of a multi-million-dollar luxury home and a small home with only two stops and two-person capacity. In some residential projects, builders or architects search for a residential elevator installer with a standard product and the drawings of their elevator. They apply those standard drawings for the initial design. These elevator plans are usually used for a small house with very inexpensive materials and are not appropriate for a multi-million-dollar project which needs high-class products.
Unlike home lifts that are very slow and small, luxury homes with many great and unique features such as furniture, a modern kitchen design, etc., the elevator should also be distinctive. If designers consider the elevator shaft and pit size large enough, then one of those best elevator designs will be possible for us to create as a luxury elevator company.
The elevator type such as inground hydraulics or machine room less gearless will help the designer with their goals. For some designers, the beauty of the features is the most significant goal, while for others, a low energy usage building system is the priority. For example, an in-ground hydraulic jack can omit any obstacle in the shaft. Also, with an under-platform door operator, you will not see anything on top of the cab that makes the elevator even more stunning. With a gearless system, you can reduce energy usage to a large extent. We will work with you to choose one of those best luxury home elevators according to your vision.
Luxury buildings need luxury features within the elevator. We have applied a wide range of luxury features to our products to create the best elevator designs. Our team ensures that the elevator is equipped with the best bells and whistles, a quality far beyond a standard lift. We provide extensive laminated safety glass in the cab walls combined with patterned or colored stainless steel. We use Swarovski crystal lights inside the glass ceiling, a glass floor with stunning lighting, and amazing picture designs inside the glass walls or digital mirrors. These are examples of elements with which you can turn the elevator into the main feature of the project.
