Location Minneapolis, Minnesota; 2000
This elevator was added to the center of an existing 3 story spiral staircase. The shaft consists of custom steel corner posts and glass walls that are supported on the existing stair stringers at each floor. The client wanted a cab design that appeared to be an old ornate enclosure that might have been found in Asia. The lower wall designs were hand-painted; the upper walls consist of ornamental ironwork backed with glass. The ironwork on the birdcage top is open to the skylight above.
