Hong Kong-based siDE Architects has recently completed a duplex that references the open-plan lay out typically found in a studio apartment

All the private space of the home is located on the upper floor, with the master bedroom opening fully into the master bathroom, without a door or a wall. The bathroom includes stand alone fixtures and sits next to the landscaped deck area to which it is connected by a foldable glass door.

The entrance on the lower floor is framed by artwork at the doorway, and is connected with a tailor-made see-through screen as a handrail on the staircase, hinting to the upper floor above. The entrance flows into the dining room, the living room, the kitchen and the study area, with a view of Victoria Harbour visible beyond.

A hidden staircase gives the owner a convenient, direct-access route to the working area below the master bedroom. This study area incorporates different sized drawers, sliding baskets for the printer, and revolving trays, so as to best utilise the space.
