This is an awesomely creative apartment with cross floor and cross side floor plan (Not sure what that is? Check out my illustrated floor plan)

Apartments are commonly plagued by boring floor plan. This apartment changes that! Now each unit gets 2 floors as well as views to all 4 sides of the building. No, I didn't make a each apartment occupy 2 floors because that is contrary to the space saving purpose of apartment buildings. This Up. Cross. Skip. Rotate. apartment offers dwelling for 4 families and a spacious shopping area. It is the perfect solution for a high end, modern apt built for downtown living.

The floor plan is a bit like a puzzle and I got confused many times over the course of building it. However, now that it is built, understanding its structure is so much more straight forward:
Up. (up from the ground and up from the shopping level)
Cross. (the units are multi-L shaped. they cross floors and each other)
Skip. (some parts of each unit skips to the floor above)
Rotate (the 4th and 5th floor is a rotated version of 2nd and 3rd floors)

Living here is going to be so much less boring!!!

Have fun!

btw, I got the idea for this apartment from the advertisement of a real estate development project in my neighbourhood. However, I couldn't find real life examples of this kind of apartments when I searched it up on Google recently. If you know about it please link it on the comments section. Thanks!
