From the architect. Exterior

We moved all circulation as stairs, elevators and corridors to the perimeter of the building to create simple rectangular floor-through apartments.

The exterior corridors facing south also function as generous sized balconies, almost vertically stacked front porches.

Interior

The 18 apartments are nearly identical. They are about 800 sqft with the freestanding bathroom / kitchen unit separating the living area from the bedroom.

The bedroom can be further divided with a retractable wall into a bedroom / home office. The front and rear windows enable easy cross-ventilation.
