Shape & Design of Building
As we know, various buildings come in various kinds of shapes and designs. Some industrial spaces may be round at the corners while others may be more rectangular or squarish in shape. Corner units within round edge buildings tend to have some rounded corners while rectangular or squarish buildings tend to have more rectangular or more regular-shaped corners. As for iconic buildings with very unique designs and shapes, some units will have unique layouts as they tend to take the shape of the building.
Optimising Available Space
As space in Singapore is already so scarce and limited, it is no surprise why building developers prefer to maximise the space or Gross Floor Area (GFA) available within buildings whenever possible. This could be the why corner units tend to have different layouts as compared to intermediate units.
Corner Units Usually Smaller or Larger
Also, when it comes to corner units, they usually tend to be either larger or smaller than other intermediate units and are usually not the same size as compared to other typical units. This is likely due to the design and size of the building. For example, a corner warehouse or factory may sometimes come in various shapes such as L-shape or with curved edges depending on the design of the building.
More Windows & Natural Lighting
Corner units may also have more windows as compared to intermediate units as they are located at the corners of buildings. This can also mean more natural ventilation, better airflow and more natural lighting for corner units. With more natural lighting, lights may not be required to be turned on during the day where natural lighting is sufficient and able to light up the place.
