Sky High Duplex Apartment
What Houzz contributors are saying:
SquareA square table is a contemporary choice that can make conversation easier, but it does have a few downsides. A square table tends to take up a vast amount of room – more than you think it will – and although it allows everyone seated at the table to see one another, the distance from one side of the table to the other means people may not be able to hear one another particularly well when there are numerous conversations going on at once. Also, unless you have a lazy Susan in the middle, passing food from one side of the table to the other usually involves a dish’s having to circumnavigate the table for it to arrive at the desired location.
“After much struggle with the furniture and planning of the duplex, we adapted a multi-layered approach to achieve a sense of clarity in spaces,” says Simeen. The designers have arranged the family lounge in the centre of the lower level around which all the other spaces have been designed. The family room (main living room) is the central and the focal space of the home and a prime example of the fusion approach used.
