The codes used for the arrangements accentuate this party. We access the landing distributing the accommodation by a "suspended" staircase. The interior of the latter is made up of a series of residential landings linked together by different flights of stairs, all articulated around a central skylight. Each function, therefore, has its own floor, while being in relation to the rest of the volume. The arrangement of functions creates privacy; from the public (low level) to the private (high level).
