The apartment house is the most typical form of urban living space. Creating layered living spaces is therefore one of the most important and multifaceted tasks for contemporary architects worldwide. This concerns not only the provision of housing facilities for the urban and suburban population but equally important also the shaping of streets and cityscapes. The selection includes buildings characterized by contemporary adaptions of traditional floor plans as well as individual floor plans on every floor, space-efficient and functional single-bedroom units as well luxurious accommodations with six and more rooms plus several bathrooms. Furthermore, exterior building design is also covered: from different types of repetitive façades, to building-shells that reflect the specific urban context and exteriors with a design that work as an eye-catcher in the urban fabric.
