Maryland Avenue

The goal was to find a home located within golf cart distance to downtown Clayton and the University City Loop. We also wanted to have enough space for an elevator, and have it located in a way that it looked as though it had always belonged in the home.

Fitting the elevator into a multiple story home required an investigation. The challenge was to ensure there was enough headroom above the elevator on the third floor, and to determine the accessway for the elevator shaft would not interrupt the rooms on the second and third floors.

Since there was an outside stairwell, an elevator was installed from the basement to the third floor. The inside stairs to the basement were also eliminated.
