By vertically connecting two housing units apartment R1 has been made into a duplex which is in principle designed as a residence of a single man with active social life. The apartment is clearly divided into a lower public area where one enters and an upper private area. The lower area is impressively designed. It is divided up into two parts: the bar area with a counter which hides the kitchen elements and a lounge with a spacious suite. Both longitudinal walls link the space with big travertino slabs. Wiring linked to the audio-video installations are discretely hidden from sight. Everything is ready for the evening party.
The upper part of the apartment is divided up into the area for the guests and the owner. The master bedroom is designed as a hedonist oasis: as an »aquatic park« and the bedroom made up of smooth mosaic, velvet curtains, transparent veil and coarse leather inviting one to touch the materials.
