Surrounded by an ecclectic mix of housing styles in Silverlake, this modern duplex presents a contextual massing which provides a sence of privacy towards neighbors while dematerializing internally. The open plan is designed around a floating staircase which serves as a sculptural centerpiece for the entire home. Abundant use of natural light activates the interior spaces. The main floor includes a kitchen/living room space that extends onto the backyard garden. Large terraces and 9 ft. wide sliding pocket doors encourage year-round, indoor-outdoor living.
