The Flowerbox Duplex

The tour took us far, far to the East Side of town, but it was worth it to be able to enter the Flowerbox Duplex, which was the most unique one of the lot. Inhabited by a young family of four and designed by Jon Handley and Melissa Baker of Pulltab Design, the 2,400 square foot apartment greeted guests with, what else, an indoor koi pond. Upon transcending a few steps into the living room, another surprise element – an elevated half wall of living ivy – beguiled visitors with its unexpected leafy facade. Don’t forget to click through our full gallery to see some of the other treats the Flowerbox had in store on its second level.
