Public Housing In Penang

A taste of Singapore's HDB flats in Penang. The strongest idea of this proposal is the linear parks that connect the towers at various levels. The parks help to break down the communities with each tower and make the communal space more accessible to the residents at a shorter travelling distance. 

The only concern to this scheme is the substantial amount of curtain class as depicted in the facade of the buildings. This may increase the energy load of the buildings and make them less environmentally sustainable.
