When an external lift becomes a prominent, even leading, part of a building's architectural look, it has to be a pretty good one in terms of both stand-out aesthetics and efficient operation.

For the new EMA building, Avery Team Architects specified Schindler's Lifts' 3300AP model for its striking visual presence and energy-saving plusses. Having the stairs and elevator outside the main body of the building already saves around 15% on services like air conditioning and even lighting.

The 3300AP's clean-drive technology saves about 30% of standard energy use. Plus, the lift also has an energy-saving stand-by mode and LED lighting.

In terms of looks the lift is in a class of its own. The elevator's glass back keeps everything light and open to the views, while the stainless steel cab and entry complement the EMA building's semi-industrial touches of mesh, concrete and glass.
