The organizing design element for this duplex apartment is a strong diagonal slicing through
space on both levels. On the upper level, this diagonal wall leads from the entry to the loft-like
living room and dining area on one side of it while a guest bedroom and en suite
bathroom are sequestered on its other side. On the lower level, this diagonal and its
perpendicular complements carefully divide the recreation and home office spaces from the
master bedroom and bathrooms. A centrally located open metal stair with both diagonal and
orthogonal sections vertically connects the two floors.
