Duplex is a term used to refer to apartments that are laid out over two floors connected by an inner staircase. In some regions duplexes are also called maisonettes. In some newer designs of duplex apartments there is a mezzanine level offering a smaller living space on the upper-level that overlooks the larger lower-level space, which instead has a higher than usual ceiling level, creating a feeling of spaciousness due to the large open space.
Fox Hills is a precinct in the district of Lusail, the latest SMART city of Qatar, located 15 kilometres north of the capital Doha. The precinct has been divided into two sections, Fox Hills North and Fox Hills South which sit either side of the Commercial Boulevard and Lusail Towers and Plaza area. Fox Hills is designed as a refined and elegant medium density inner-city residential area combining mixed-use buildings and pedestrian-friendly streets set amongst beautifully landscaped naturally green spaces and parks including Crescent Park.
Three schools are planned for the northern section: a kindergarten, a primary school and a secondary school. In the southern section, two schools are currently under construction. Many homes are available for rent and sale in Fox Hills.
