Is it just me or has anyone realized many apartments or townhouses built since late 90s and early 20s in Melb are not so practical in the following ways: - Often you found them having bedroom without window. This mostly occur in internal spaces where they have to create a door with fake window which borrows light from external real window. You be surprised how many apartments actually built like this. I haven't lived in one like this so I can't comment how practical it is, has any? - Also you found sooooo many apartments having kitchen placed right internally. I mean.... It's really not practical if you cook a lot especially with frying stuff where the smell just stuck in the living area. That's why I like old school units as they are built so practically that often u see there's window at kitchen area. Anyone agrees? - Small space. I don't understand why developers have to build sooo many one and two bedders. Why? Why? Why? In Adelaide, new apartments are so spacious. Even in Sydney, you don't see 49sqm one bedder. But in Melb, they like to put kitchen next to your TV wall, and you will be cooking in the living room. It seems like they just not trying hard enough with the design and just build so many boxes quickly and put a high price tag on it just because of location. Even in overseas like Kuala Lumpur, luxury condos are meant to be luxury, like you will see every piece of the condo made to cater your daily needs, for example no bedroom walls connects to another bedroom's, and each room has an external window etc. - One bathroom. Another puzzle for me not understanding why it's so expensive to have an extra bathroom. I can understand an extra parking might cost a lot more due to space limit but bathroom....?
