Single family housing is for many reasons considered a more favorable form of housing than the multi-family one. Hence, designing of housing in a multi-family housing structure is a special challenge for designers, because it is expected that the dwelling comfort offered by the multi-family structure is as similar to one of living in a house as possible, that is to seek analogies with the family house when designing a multi-family building. There is a number of possible ways to individualize a multi-family building, regarding the apartments, architectonic composition or urban composition, whose realization would contribute to enhancement of multi-family housing quality.
