The Challenge – A Tall, Self-Supporting ElevatorNovember 25, 2015
Architects working on the Tournament Players Club (TPC) near Boston, Massachusetts, needed a custom elevator. They had a Colonial-designed clubhouse and did a great job creating a comfortable, upscale feel throughout the building. From the exterior design to the professional golf course, everything about the TPC says quality, elegance and style. For the architects, when it came to the elevator, it had to echo the same design standards. After all, no ordinary elevator would do, as the wrong style would interrupt the integrity of the décor. At the request of the project architects, Phoenix Modular Elevator (PME) produced a custom elevator with a unique design to meet their needs.
The design team at PME worked closely with the architects to produce the perfect look. They used a unique painted expanded metal design that mimicked antique ironwork for the hoistway. A high-quality dark wood laminate in the cab interior completed the desired design. The dark cab purposely matched the rich wood trim and moldings of the rest of the building, as well as the furniture in the adjoining rooms.
A modular elevator doesn't mean a cookie-cutter, inflexible design. On the contrary, the factory-built process means design options are unlimited. This project clearly demonstrates this. PME loved working directly with the project architects to achieve their beautiful design.
