Deciding factors for the design of the apartment
The process of studying the design of a high-rise building is often determined by a typical floor.
3 typical plans include: Basement – Podium (service zone) – High-rise block, when well studied in terms of function, column grid, and technical system, can lead the remaining designs of the project. successful projects, limiting conflicts and risks arising when implementing construction.
The typical floor plans of these 3 blocks are all very important and need to be studied in parallel, but within the framework of the article & my limited knowledge, I only mentioned typical apartment plans.
The apartment premises requirements need to be met:
- The ratio of saleable area/construction floor area reaches 80~85%
- Compact function, less traffic area.
- Direction of air circulation through the room. The bedroom needs to have an open surface for exposure and natural air circulation.
- The location of the air-conditioner heater & the design of the facade.
- Washing & drying machine position. Kitchen odor removal solution.
When studying the column grid of the apartment floor, it is necessary to note the influence of the column system on the podium/basement/service floor.
The M.E.P technical system is arranged most shortly and compactly to avoid overlapping.
Ensure fire protection requirements…
The structure of apartments in an apartment building usually has the following main types:
- 1 bedroom apartment.
- 2 bedroom apartment.
- 3 bedroom/duplex apartment.
- Penthouse penthouse luxury apartment.
In addition to the above main types of apartments, currently developing Dual-Key apartments.
That is, the apartment using the common hall can flexibly separate 1 bedroom into a studio apartment for rent or merge into a large apartment for shared use when converting.
This model is suitable for urban apartments, 2-bedroom or 3-bedroom apartments can separate 1 room for flexible rental depending on the needs of buyers.
The Dual-key model is very convenient for newlywed families who do not yet have the need to use multiple bedrooms but are easy to expand in the future.
Here are some typical apartments for reference:
(The plans are being considered with a grid of 7m 4+3 and optimal performance that can be flexibly and easily combined with the base block system. The facade of the building has not been considered yet. Depending on the actual case and specific apartment needs you can adjust accordingly.)

1-BEDROOM APARTMENT LAYOUT:
2-BEDROOM APARTMENT LAYOUT:
DUAL-KEY APARTMENT LAYOUT:The floor plan of the dual-key apartment is flexible, separating rooms for convenient rental.

Other notes when designing typical apartment premises:
Dual-Key apartment model as mentioned above with the advantage of being able to separate 1 bedroom for rent as an independent studio by moving/adding a door to separate the common hall at the entrance.
In case you need to use it, you can return a 2-bedroom apartment very flexibly.
So it is very convenient for newlywed families who do not have the need to use many bedrooms but are easy to expand in the future.
Can buy backup & sublease depending on need.
Dual-key apartments are the trend of choice for young customers, a potential mid-end segment.
The article above is a personal opinion about the practice of typical apartment layout design.
