Long before self-driving cars, the elevator and airplane went through similar technological shifts - from being completely manually operated to now having computers do most of the work

Always amazing when clients are excited to try out their new elevator. However gotta admit I'm even more proud when the elevator turns out exactly like our specialty elevator renderings. Image on the left is the rendering for the cab photographed on the right. Before any materials were purchased or metal was cut our clients were 100% satisfied and approved every element of the project ensuring zero change orders and no surprises during manufacturing.

Was thrilled to see these beautifully renovated Yorkville elevators at 30 and 50 Hillsboro lit up. The custom wall coverings, patina bronzed detailing, mirror etching and recessed lighting system gives this prestigious property a truly unique elevator experience.

In an era where google maps and location based services are wide spread throughout various mediums in both the physical and digital world, the designers at Premier Elevator wanted to combine both craft and technology to create a unique wall installation for this apartment building turned condo.

Brushed black excelsior stainless steel panels worked as the canvas for CNC engraved graphics inspired by typical suburban neighbourhoods. Location based markings and gestures map out the streets and places where where signicant moments and events occured. Scale and depth signify the value of memories making the streets and events immediately viewable in one easy to understand image.

Stainless steel suspended ceiling panels complete with eight compact led point lights illuminate the interior of this otherwise dark design. Two slim line porcelain panels on each side of the glass panels cut to fit on a lightweight aluminum substrate with stainless steel no.4 reveals and L angle trims. Finally three 1-1/2”dia stainless steel tubular handrails on all non-access walls double as bumper rails protecting the custom wall panels.

The Hermes Building is a brick and limestone office tower completed in 1928. Designed and built in the Art-Deco era, the ediface is a beautiful example of quality craftsmanship partnered with beautiful design. Premier’s focus was to ensure the new elevator interior only complimented this historical landmark.

Utilizing both durable and natural materials provided a strong architectural unity between the structure of the building and the interior design while reducing maintenance. Centered on the rear wall, four vertical bronzed safety mirrors complete with 16gage brushed brass trims. Aligning with the mirrors on both side walls are horizontal stone panels on a lightweight aluminum substrate. Faced with Calcareus Limestone and framed with 7mm stainless steel trims, each panel is secured with wall-mounted clips evenly separating each panel by 14mm.

Two 76mm full length lacquered brass tubular handrails rest above a raised brass support band on the rear wall only. On the side walls the support band continues the flow of brass to the front wall. A concave brass ceiling with two perforated panels hovers just above two brushed brass ceiling panels. Six low voltage down lights with adjustable lens cast direct light flares against the limestone wall panels.

The artwork expresses a 'fragmented urban history in motion' focusing on iconic structures and events in Montréal while making a special emphasize on the people that occupy this great Canadian city. Each photograph captured is a moment of time and space, when stitched together and overlaid with each other they become 'generative narratives'. Utilizing a variety of digital effects and elements, each piece becomes a map of urban ecology.

The blurring effect suggests that the subjects in the work are in motion, tangled with their surrounding environment and part of the greater picture. Distorting the scale of each photo, using multiple perspectives and fragmenting the environment was a technique used to "frame" smaller details capturing the eye before guiding it around the composition. These fractals, like pieces of a puzzle, is relatively abstract until you step back and look at the entire image as a whole. Our processed was developed through conversations in person and in email, across borders and language we shared inspirational works by Serge Mendjisky, Jean-François Poullio, and Davide Bramante to name a few. Mendjisky's images of New York is inspired by the brush strokes from the Impressionism period along with the Cubist style popularized by Picasso and Braque.

Visiting time based media, the film by Canadian artist Poullio presented in World Shanghai Expo inspired the idea of moving time through still photography. Lastly an infographic, word based visual representations of information, data or knowledge presented the complex information quickly and clearly of each pieces unique subject.
