Within a couple of steps getting to the living room, kitchen, bathroom, and your bed won’t take a lot of your time which is suitable for people who are living at a fast pace. 

Apart from the suppleness a studio stimulates, this is for those who treat the city as their living area which dwells most of their waking hours in the urban space. A studio unit for these types of residents serves as the landing space after their long day of city routine.

And needless to mention, the affordability of studio units is also attractive for young adults and first-time condo buyers who want to experience an independent life with an affordable and flexible payment arrangement.

One Bedroom

If you’re the type who loves accommodating guests and hosts intimate gatherings but also compartmentalizes a private space for your personal wellbeing, a one-bedroom unit is the best condo structure that fits you. This unit’s partitions offer exclusivity for those who are living alone but like to commune, foster, and connect every possible form of relationship.

From an office workshop, recording, or art studio, to an elaborate kitchen for your baking desire, a one-bedroom unit best fit these working spaces without the obstruction of your personal space. A separate social and working area that is detached from your personal space is one way to get to a place where you feel more in control of your life.

Two Bedroom

For families who are starting up or for those who are moving to urban living, a two-bedroom condominium unit is the most economical and sensible choice of abode. Vertical living, (not just for these demographics) cuts down a lot of daily living expenses due to its convenience to places of interest, and one of which is the reduction of fuel cost and commutes. Most condos are already equipped with features and amenities that save up a lot of expenses for family activities. Pools, playgrounds, gyms, and clubhouses are commonly present in vertical developments and perfect in flourishing family bonds.

This unit is partitioned mostly for a family of 3 or at most, 4. Raising children needs a safe and secured environment and compared to a house and lot property, the security of a condo is much reliable because all the guests and non-tenant must go through a unified entrance, lobbies. Additionally, the 24/7 security and CCTV feature monitor every movement outside the units.

Garden unit

With people who love the outdoor atmosphere and open-air ambiance yet want to opt for the convenience of vertical living which mostly are smaller than a house and lot property, some developers (e.g. The Loop Towers by Vista Residences) have designed a unit structure specifically for this type of demand. A garden unit is structured as having a big balcony ready to cater to private outdoor gatherings, small celebrations, or a romantic outdoor dinner.

Indoor plants are rampant in vertical space as it balances the humidity of your dwelling space but for this unit, as its name implies, Garden units are tailored to lodge outdoor plants and vegetation. One can grow a small Zen garden for morning yoga, meditation, or a place to stress out. Owning this unit is like owning an oasis in the urban setup.


Traditionally located on the top floor of a residential building, a penthouse nowadays is recognized as a unit with the most spacious and deluxe floor plan among all the offered units in an inventory regardless of any floor. But as is commonly placed on the higher floors, a penthouse offers an obstructed view of a city or a mountain. Furthermore, there few common characteristics of a penthouse: outdoor access, many private hallways, and some with high ceilings.

So if you’re more into premium and quality finishes, the best view of a city, and a much bigger space, a penthouse best suits your lifestyle.
