The Playbook For The Modern Man

T3 Architecture Designs The Perfect Masculine Duplex Home

Full screen

We don’t normally do duplexes but when we do we make damn good sure it’s worth your time. Welcome to one of the finest duplexes in Marseille, France, a cool residential project freshly completed by T3 Architecture in 2016.

The home spans two levels and features some finely appointed modern touches such as a floating stairwell and shades of monochrome offset by natural timber hues. It’s an odd mix which is neither classic nor overly modern, rather a fine balance between the two which just works.

The semi-industrial space is further enhanced by cool lighting features and a solid cement wall which extends from the first floor to the second floor.


A glass panel floor upstairs allows inhabitants to enjoy a feeling of floating on air as they ascend the stairs. Once upstairs you’ll be greeted with a small but very modern bathtub which borrows pointers from a German design handbook.

Not over the top, not too dull. This is a family home with character any man can grow into.
