REDISTRIBUTE

- Redistribution of bedrooms creates smaller footprint; more units can be built on the site which reduces unit cost
- Projection of bedroom allows private engagement of balcony versus public projecting attachment
- Different configurations allows gradation of unit pricing making units available to broader range of income levels

RECOVER

- More floor area can be built within a single story by utilizing building code exceptions
- Higher ceiling heights allows natural light deeper into space and reduces effects of the narrow unit width
