A few days ago we mentioned how rare it is to encounter a multi-unit property that still retains its original unpainted woodwork. Well, apparently this week it is not so unusual after all because today we have another impressive duplex to share. This one was designed by Walter Ratcliff and it is full of his typical unexpected detail combinations and interesting juxtapositions. Always keen to put his own spin on familiar forms, Ratcliff’s duplex disguises the fact that it is two units by having what are essentially two separate facades, each with its own individual personality.
