Dissolving the Enclosed Elevator Lobby: The Benefits

When it comes to meeting smoke and fire codes, the enclosed elevator lobby has reigned supreme for many years.

While elevator lobbies can be excellent in terms of fire safety, they can be an eyesore, expensive, and a huge impediment on design or architecture. Furthermore, many older buildings do not have the space required to create an entire enclosed lobby without sacrificing valuable square footage elsewhere.

Not only does this save square footage, but can save money as well. Without the need for a large lobby, the space can be redistributed into usable or saleable space.
