Fail: Handicap elevators that can only be reached by stairs

Post by Mark


Spotted this picture on Kuwaitiful awhile ago and it cracked me up. It was taken at Arabella by @william_in_arabia.

    Gotta give credit for trying.

  3. FYI says:

    even the elevator doesn’t sit level with the pavement and the button is too high.

    It is a misunderstood photo!

    This elevator takes the handicapped people from basement level to this ground level (as what the photo shows!). If William didn’t understand, Kuwaitiful didn’t understand, Mark you should understand.

    I can say now blogger-fails!

      duh, we know that. the issue here is the steps to get to the elevator.

      Regardless from where to where is taking the people you still have to get in or out from the elevator. And as FYI highlighted the elevator is not flushed with the floor nor has an access ramp to get in or out; not to mention that you have to “fly” with the wheelchair over the two big steps to reach to the elevator.
      So my friend it is a FAIL and you FAIL too.

    Whatever the case is based on comments above, Arabella itself is horribly planned and executed. It’s a massive project with only one point of access for entry/exit, a poorly-accessible parking with narrow spaces, low ceilings and insufficient capacity, a valet area for less than ten cars, bathrooms with substandard finishing and plumbing and nonexistent signage in the elevator lobbies and staircase landings.

    For a project that cost so much and took years to put together, I would’ve expected much more.
