Yea well in that case, I know people who have some kind of lift, a moving seat attached to the origional staircase. It's for oldies only or for people who can't walk. But a lift just because it's four floors? Old townhouses of taht hight en higher (up to six floors in Europe) didn't have a lift either.

I like the modern ones you posted, hate the fake old ones.

So, do you dislike is any sort of revival styles? Perhaps you only like modern architecture?
