This design features charming one-bedroom flats arranged in pairs, offering a cozy and efficient living arrangement. The ground floor units are designed to be fully accessible, making them ideal for individuals or couples with mobility challenges. Additionally, the private upper suites cater to caregivers, ensuring a supportive living environment.

This versatile design can be mirrored to create a fourplex, providing flexibility in configuration. Furthermore, it can be rotated and multiplied to fill any lot size, as demonstrated with collections of 6 or 8 units. By tucking the second storey under the roof, the design achieves a remarkably low and humble profile considering the density of units. In total, the design accommodates either 6 or 8 units, depending on the size of the lot.

The proposed floor space ratios (FSR) are 0.54 on a 50×120’ lot and 0.60 on a 60×120’ lot, showcasing efficient land usage while maintaining a comfortable living environment.
