This is a typical private apartment built in the 1970s. There is no lift access.
There is a stairwell on the ground floor. The residents need to climb up a flight of steep stairs to reach their apartment unit.
The upper floor units each have their own personal small foyer. Each foyer has it’s own small window.
The residents are an elderly couple in their 70s. This is the floor plan of their unit.
The apartment was last renovated in the early 1980s, so this makes it a ‘Period 7’ apartment.
The residents were very affluent back in the 1970s and the 1980s. Their children have all graduated from University, and have shifted out of their maternal home. The sole breadwinner (the elderly man) is no longer working, and the elderly couple are living off their savings.
在上世纪七十，八十年代，屋主夫妇非常富裕。他们供他们三个孩子上国外大学， 毕业后， 孩子各有自己的家庭， 搬出去了。 唯一养家糊口的老爷爷生病了， 不能工作了。 这对老年夫妇依靠他们的积蓄来生活。
