Under rapid housing developments in the past years, Hong Kong has benefited much in terms of economy. However, important values such as values in sense of community and individual identity were lost. This thesis hereby critically reviews current and past housing projects in Hong Kong and states the notion of verticality as the only solution. The ambition is a new alternative high-rise residential typology, in which its inhabitants are given unique units and allocations in accordance to a specific zoning strategy within a tower structure, thus creating a phenomenal living experience through bonding and acquiring needs by each and every single individual. It is a re-interpretation of the balance between genericity and specificity aiming at formulating an extraordinary democratic living concept.
