The design of this duplex apartment naturally makes the most of a dramatic open vista, with the key living spaces flowing through to a series of terraces and outdoor rooms. Circulation routes sit to the rear of the plan, arranged around a sculptural staircase, made of monolithic platinum travertine and crystal glass balustrade, which also serves as an atrium and lightwell, drawing upon the sunlight and greenery of a courtyard garden towards the rear of the building; the double-sided custom fireplace in the sitting room also frames a view of the stairway, atrium and this characterful garden court.
