This research project on multi apartment housing deals with a multilevel apartment “typology” based on properties that are preserved under continuous deformations. Based on external to the geometry constrains, such as panoramic views, semicircular site shape and functionality, we develop a weaving strategy over the different apartments, to balance input benefits over the deformed geometry. Sets with certain properties are used to define a topological space consequent with convergence, connectedness, and continuity, upon transformation. Based on internal to the geometry constrains, continuous functions with a continuous inverse are generated. Architectonic values are conceptually attached to these mathematical functions, completing the generation of an architectonic variation
