Separate Zones within the Apartment

Zone 1- A courier or a milkman can be disposed from this area only. He gets to see only a dead wall in front of him and no other area of the flat. Can be used further for changing of shoes, placing of shoe rack or simply a welcome painting.

Zone 2- A semi-private common zone for guests & residents consisting of a guest room, living area, dining room and a common washroom.

Zone 3- A zone of silence and privacy. Master bedroom and other bedrooms are here.

Basic Principles

  • Consider the apartment layout in terms of separating noisy rooms from quieter rooms.
  • Group similar functions together.
