Verto Apartments

The clarity of the relationship between shared circulation, apartments and vertical core provides spatial generosity for the building’s inhabitants. The vertical core spaces are designed with natural light and high-quality materials, despite the affordable-cost apartment budget. This provides informal social spaces for developing a sense of community and creates a sense of ownership of the shared spaces beyond each individual apartment, a vital element to the success of apartment living. The typical breezeway layout is challenged, with some success. Previous similar projects have enabled this architectural practice to use the low-cost apartment typology as a “learning ground” for future improvement.
