Soho Duplex

Combining two stacked apartments with a new rear extension, we modulated the spaces to draw you through the resulting duplex. To gain ceiling height, we lowered the extension’s floor, which created multiple levels for gardens: a green roof off the master bedroom, an arboreal backyard, and a sunken terrace outside the living room. The treads of the new stair cantilever from a bank of cabinets. A chimney with indoor and outdoor fireplaces anchors the glass wall of the living room.
