This duplex is owned by a young family who gave the designer enormous creative freedom. The home features modern design with a touch of old-world Europe — as seen in the Venetian plaster finishes, marble bathrooms and herringbone floors. Despite having an internal width of only 4.8 meters and a shared wall with no windows, the home still has ample natural light and lots of elegant personality. Outstanding features include a curvaceous powder room, a cantilevered kitchen island that allows four people to sit face-to-face and a curved marble staircase at the entrance.
