This is a railroad-facing apartment for rent.
It is located in a low rise residential district between a railway extending approximately 11 meters and a residential road extending 4 meters.
With maximum height limits of 10m and minimum living room area of 25 square meters in mind, we drew up a plan. With the theme being the environmental impact statements of low rise housing neighborhoods, we took into consideration a pleasant living environment and high earnings of these areas.
The size of one unit is 2.4m x 13.2m.
The bathroom is placed in the middle, dividing the space in two.
