They all look fantastic, especially the ones that had been renovated. Pleasure to look at.

Well, my neighbours are cool, but the fact is those balconies may be problematic if neighbours aren't that cool As for floorplans I just got one, here it is:


Eight flats on the floor (here designated with 9-16).
K for kitchen
P for room
Ł and WC for bathroom and toilet respectively
KOM for storeroom within flat
X for elevators (two basic, one enlarged)
Black boxes for storerooms on the corridor.
Staircase in the core accesible via fire resistant doors

Unmarked closed spaces within flats are vent and pipe shafts, two unmarked spaces on the corridor (upper left and lower right side) ale loggias. Pretty stupid, as they are accesible from the corridor, not from the kitchen of neighbouring flat. They say it's designed that way for easier evacuation.

Balconies are not drawn.

Seven more buildings in the city share the same design with other, much smaller balconies. For their shape called "gwiazdy" ("stars"):

man, all these tower blocks floorplans are damn nice interesting to study. Because with these towerblocks one has the possibility to garanty that a flat is sun-exposed not only by one orientation. There must exist a dependency of how much flats exist per floor the more have the corners of such a towerblock to increase to ensure the above made condition. This statement holds true from the number of 4. The best case would be 1 flat per floor. Once I have seen a planning of such a building in a book which described a construcion of this in London in the early 20s. Somebody knows if this ever was about to happen?
Next case would be 2 flats per floor and so on till 4 flats per floor to ensure the condition to have at least 2 minimum orientations in a flat. Everything above without increasing the corners of the geometrical shape of the floorplan is pure crap. You will end up having long corridors with dead ends just like in this highly overrated living machines of Corbusier. I need to break this down in the near future.....but currently I don't have the time for it. Something like a symbolic language is needed to abstract all these representations of in fact one type of commieblock. One had to define "types" of commieblocks, maybe like Time69 once has done it. Then one would be able to construct theoratically every possible type of commieblock. Somebody would have the task to collect properties which define a commieblock and then there is a need for a one-to-one correspondance to our symbolic language. But I think Time69 has made a big step towards this problem, but his symbolic language isn't capable of my visualisation of "orientation of flats towards each other". Maybe Time69's symbolic language should be applied a level level deeper. Every pattern should represent a flat and not a whole living unit as a whole or just some exterior but instead there should exist 4 different types of exteriors namely the cardinal directions.

There you go https://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...=604687&page=2

But I have not the time right now to work on that, since I also would like to present this shit with some examples. This means that I had to dig for examples in the library, but I am still collecting these examples.

@1000cities: reminds me at big hotels in very touristic places when everybody can watch directly to your balcony.

It depends from town to town (and country as well). Here in Croatia, the average is about 60 m2. For example, in these buildings ( https://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...5&postcount=67 ), there are 7 flats per floor, varying from 30 m2 to 100 m2. But the average size of all apartments is about 60

Thank you so much for answering my question, I've just discovered this sub-forum and I'm having the time of my life (I'm a commieblock lover, I tought I was the only one ), enjoying all the pictures and information.
Greetings

...to abstract from your avatar it might be possible that you are a female. that is pretty unusual for girls to be interested in commieblocks. to be interested in commieblocks is pretty "nerdish" and is against the common aesthetic design of architecture. but anyways, feel welcome to contribute with a lot more plannings of "living for everybody" from south america.

for some of us commieblocks are a reality to live in it and we honor their advantages and sometimes dislike their cheap construction. but it becomes nerdy (like myself) if one shows obsessive interest for such urban plannings.
