Tech/Engineering - Architecture / apartment description
French term or phrase: entrée avec comble
This is in a description of an apartment for lease. I imagine it means some sort of entryway with a slanted ceiling perhaps? If anyone has a better grasp on architectural terms than I do, I would appreciate suggestions.

No examples found of this phrase in French. However, entrance halls often do have a loft hatch, so this might be what was meant.

Note that this is generally considered preferable to loft access from the bathroom.
