really? never seen that - I have always put the accessible wc at entry level in a duplex. Mind you, I always make the upstairs bathroom accessible too.
Unless you've no habitable rooms at entry level in which case the toilet goes on the same floor as the living room. Usually the 45sqm rule helps in duplexes
