Criteria for Estimated Privacy & Exterior-ness.

a+t research group analyses all of the projects in terms of Privacy and Exterior-ness, the two behaviours which best define the desirable dwelling.

Each card in the pack shows the floor plan and a housing unit of a project.

Front of each card estimates the level of Privacy of the dwellings taking into account:

- vertical circulation cores

- horizontal circulation floor area

- real project heights

- number of housing units per storey

Back of each card estimates the level of Exterior-ness of the housing unit in terms of:

- exterior space %

- facade %

- number of orientations

- width of openings

- depth of the housing unit

Imperial and metric systems are used. The compact size of the pack (13x8 cm / 5x3 in) makes it easy to quickly compare and identify the advantages of each different floor plan.

50 Housing Floor Plans is our bid to disseminate the collective housing in which we would like to live. It is not a pack of playing cards. It is a pack for better living". a+t research group.

The collection of cards is part of the Density series, first published by a+t in 2002 and considered to be a leading reference work on collective housing worldwide.
