Split Level House that located in Philadelphia, United States, was designed by qb3. Inside, the house does follow the arrangement of its suburban namesake, a split-level. Organized vertically, from the roof garden to the entryway, the staggered levels lets one know where one is in relation to the other rooms as well as the other buildings outside.
The house also features a sun-filled entry hall with concrete stairs that step down to form what feels like a mini-amphitheatre. The ribbon of stairs are the key feature in this project – from the more weighty concrete stairs in the entryway to the steel-bound oak steps that connect the upper levels.
Atop the house is the terrace that offers nearly 360-degree views of the city and the punched openings in the parapet surrounding the deck offers privacy while at the same time giving a lighter appearance the top of the house.
