German term or phrase: auf einer versetzten Ebene
Die Mastersuite verfügt neben einem begehbaren Kleiderschrank und einem kleinen Balkon über eine eigene Lounge/Büro, die/welches auf einer versetzten Ebene mit dem Schlafzimmer verbunden ist.

This is a description of a Villa in Spain. I am not sure if 'auf einer versetzten Ebene' means a space located a level higher or lower than the rest.

A google result gave me the following lead:

Here, it obviously means a level higher. Is there a standard (architectural) expression to describe this kind of space utilisation?

Thanks Bernhard!
I agree - 'split-level' is the closest. I have used this in in my translation. 'Offset' would have been too technical and inappropriate for a partly 'flowery' property description. Thanks everyone!
