The 4 benefits of owning a multi-level house

The 4 benefits of owning a multi-level house

Letting the light flow

Opting for a multi-level house rather than a traditional layout allows for more light to flood through staggered windows that can be dotted throughout the property. Split-level living room design typically includes open-plan spaces, so this extra natural light streaming through the glass can flood through your home, making it feel even more spacious.

The Villa Chameleon, in Palma de Mallorca is a multi-level house with a facade featuring huge panes of crystal glass, allowing the sunlight to cascade from one room to another. White internal walls reflect these rays to create a soft glow throughout the villa. In this property, advanced LED lighting is even incorporated into each level for when the sun goes down. Every floor has a different LED color, which is what gives this innovative property its name.
Adding visual texture

A multi-level house is meant to play with our traditional ideas of what defines a room or a wall, which means you can be a little playful with your interior design too. Large walls that stretch across multiple floors are ideal places to display large canvas art or tapestries, while high ceilings offer ample space for hanging impressive chandeliers above your living area.

Your living room design could even incorporate contrasting materials to differentiate these overlapping surfaces. A focal wall made from exposed sandstone or red brick could be used as a decorative feature spanning from ground to roof, and therefore across several floors in between.
Balancing the open and closed

In split-level living, a balance needs to be struck between the luxury of open plan design and the necessity for privacy. This Santa Margalita property in the north of Mallorca shows us how this can be done.

While the seating area around the pool in this property feels open and social, the owner also has a secluded upper deck that provides more shelter and intimacy. The JacuzziThe 4 benefits of owning a multi-level house may offer views across the gardens and distant mountains, but it is fundamentally a private space. This distinction between public and private is made possible by the multi-level design, which staggers the terraces while still ensuring they benefit from the stunning surrounding landscape.
Soaking up the view

Architectural tiering helps to sculpt your home around the scenery, so that as many of your rooms have panoramic views as possible. If, like the two properties above, your property overlooks something spectacular, you'll be keen to maximise the potential for vistas in your living area. A multi-level house does exactly that.

In summary multi-level design isn't limited to new builds. You can incorporate ideas like this into extensions to existing properties or even your landscape gardening.
