Water Lift: Scale Model, London

In 2010 Matthew Lloyd Architects created a world’s first water and solar powered wheelchair lift for the London Festival of Architecture.

We were delighted to be asked by Matthew Lloyd Architects to help build this world’s first design; a lift to carry wheelchair users up and down the historic Duke of York steps in Pall Mall, London.

In addition to helping build the large original piece we also produced a 1:10 scale model using Acrylic and styrene. Our model was later selected as one of the installations for the Royal Academy’s highly prestigious Summer Exhibition.

We hold this particular design close to our hearts and it still remains one of the most exciting and innovative projects we’ve ever been involved with.
