Duplex Living Room with stair in foreground



This project began with the need to combine a pair of ordinary one-bedroom apartments -- one above the other. All the original ceilings, walls, fixtures and finishes were replaced by crisp, modern elements revolving around a new modern stair. These minimalist design elements coordinate effortlessly with the modern furnishings and contemporary African art collection.

The light oak floors and stair treads contrast with the coffee-colored wenge cabinetry. Etched glass and satin stainless steel elements provide luminous, shimmering accents throughout the project.
