Designed-in flexibility in Quebec ski country
For the Lac Tremblant house, nestled in Quebec’s prime ski country, MU Architecture’s project lead Charles Côté chose the new Savaria® Vuelift® Mini. With its 50" footprint, it offers increased floorplan flexibility but can still accommodate two adult passengers riding in comfort.
“When we showed it to our clients, they said, ‘Wow! Where do we get one?’” he reports. “Traditional home elevators often don’t have much attention paid to the aesthetic.”
MU Architecture first discovered the Vuelift in 2020, and now has multiple projects on the go that feature the glass elevator as a signature piece in the home’s design.
Make the most of panoramic vistas
“We placed the Vuelift® Mini to give a clear view of the lake, with the mountain on the far side of the water, as well as a wider view of the home’s interior design features as you ride up and down,” says Côté.
Homeowners can stand at the lower garden level and see all the way to the top floor, giving an added feeling of height and airiness to the home. The staircase features a single structural beam and floating steps with glass rails embedded in the floors to provide a clear line of sight through the living space.
