We recently installed a Pneumatic Vacuum Elevator in a condominium complex in Arlington VA. Installing home elevators in condos is a unique challenge—one that Signature Elevators & Accessible Design is familiar with and knows how to approach. All 44 units in this block are two-story penthouse units, including the owner’s, which was a penthouse that was on the top two floors. Installing a Pneumatic Vacuum Elevator seemed to be the right approach to address this client’s concerns, but it also presented a unique challenge that we were proud to have overcome.
In this case, the owner absolutely loved the two-story apartment that overlooks much of Arlington. It was understandably the case that moving wasn’t an option, but getting a home elevator in a penthouse such as this is a difficult challenge. Avoiding the circular staircase that joined the two floors was the ultimate goal; by installing a Pneumatic Vacuum Elevator, the client was once again able to freely enjoy the full space they had invested in when they initially purchased this beautiful two-story penthouse apartment.
When looking for a space-saving solution that can fit in a compact home such as this, we often opt for a Pneumatic Vacuum Elevator. In this case, we went with the PVE37 model, which is a two-passenger elevator that can fit in virtually any home. It doesn’t take up nearly as much space as traditional home elevators because it doesn’t require a machine room, pit, or hoist way. The sleek design, automatic interior LED lights, and equipped fan are all great amenities that made this elevator an even more appealing option.
Arlington VA is home to some important buildings—the Reagan National Airport, the Pentagon, and Arlington National Cemetery, all of which are often associated with nearby Washington D.C. It’s just a hop and a skip away from the capital city which is why so many choose to live there in order to have a quick, easy commute. Arlington is such a beautiful city with so much to offer and we’re always glad to make the journey down there to install wonderful home elevators.
