1.2 Rawabi City, Palestine: Residential Typology


Apartments were designed through a consultation with local populations of neighbouring Palestinian settlements. As a result of this the low rise housing is spacious, well ventilated and though lacks aesthetic quality, it resoundingly succeeds in lowering the population density. Each apartment is designed for anywhere between 2 and 4 individuals and these project aims to create 10,000 homes. The floor to floor height of roughly 3m is also very generous for residential conditions in this region.
