Although the typical homebuyer prefers the single family home as his/her initial product of choice, concerns over affordability and an increased demand for the convenience, location, and lifestyle provided by higher-density products, have led to a rise in demand for the single-family-attached and multi-family residences.
Even when affordability is the primary goal of the developer, livability for the inhabitants must never be overlooked. For the buildings themselves, condominiums or apartment blocks may be required to accommodate the higher densities. However, by incorporating more "human" components such as balconies, trellises, articulation of rooflines, and varying color schemes or landscape elements, a more residential, livable quality can be achieved. Within, although individual apartment units may be small, space perceptions can be increased by maximizing the perimeter exterior walls, maximizing glazing and balcony areas to expand views to the outdoors and making interior space seem larger with open/flexible floor plans.
Continued population growth in Asia will undoubtedly increase the demand for higher-density housing. Changing lifestyles caused by changing demographics, changing economics, and changing technology will demand more innovative design solutions that promote livability yet maintain affordability.
As Asians with insight into and experience with the various tastes, values, social traditions, and ethnic heritages of diverse Asian cultures, we at KTGY fully understand the needs and desires of the local markets and are ideally situated to combine local precedents with contemporary and innovative housing designs.
