"The stair leads straight up to two rooms, the study and salon, which are concealed from the living room but closely connected to it," said Frank. The twisted staircase ends at a third landing that begins the private area of the home. "At this point...the main living areas comes to an end," added Frank. "To emphasize this fact, the stairs wind in the other direction...a clear division of the house is achieved."
