FLEXSTEP Case: Ali Emiri cultural centre in Istanbul

Fatih Ali Emiri Efendi Kultur Merkezi

The cultural centre of music, conferences, theatre etc. is located in the heart of the beautiful old part of the town and is one of the most visited theaters in Istanbul.

The big township has been looking for an appropriate solution for barrier-free access to the stage which – besides shows – in the future also is intended for conference events.

Due to the round shape and lack of space between the front row of seats and the stage the architect had to find a way to integrate a lifting platform for people with physical disabilities into the stage. The decision finally fell on the FlexStep. It was a simple intervention only to remove the stage stair case. This was afterwards beautifully timbered and repainted.

The steps and handrails fitted, were specially selected to match the original stage design.

FlexStep

FlexStep is an elegant combination of regular stairs and wheelchair lift, which easily provides wheelchair users and the walking-impaired access between two levels. The convertible 2-in-1 solution saves a lot of space compared to both stairs and a lifting platform. FlexStep is easy to integrate into any existing surroundings due to a wide range of design options and configurations.
