18 apartments in 5 story building / parking on ground floor / recreation room in cellar
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 .
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.
