Project Description

Abell Duplex

For this apartment combination project, 1100 Architect merged what had been two apartments on separate floors into a single cohesive space. A sculptural staircase visually connects the floors while separating the social spaces—a living room, dining room, and kitchen—from the private study and bedroom upstairs. The design of the bedroom was inspired by the client’s travels in Asia and features sliding glass panels reminiscent of fusuma. Throughout, natural materials like wood and limestone provide accent and warmth to the space.
