Architectural qualities of the city and the multiple possibilities that an apartment can offer to its inhabitants very individual, interior dimension (distribution matters, kitchen and bathroom layout, furniture, flexibility and integration) to the whole collective perspective (urban scale, faÉades, common facilities and its insertion within the city). The cityþs increasing expansion that comes along with low-density, vast suburbia is one relevant topic of present urban development. This expansion not only has something to do with demographics or rural migration: it is strongly linked to growing demands of contemporary citizens on space, and also to the widespread dream of a house in the middle of a garden. However, most of the time this aspiration involves a long distance to commute, small properties and lack of public services.
