This type, parallel blocks perpendicular to the street, is quite rare. Entry is via an alleyway between blocks leading to open staircases that led to shared balcony/landings. There is limited information on this design and so it is unclear how the space between buildings were used.
- street (city) ⇒ enter gap between buildings (boundary) ⇒ enter stair lobby (one of four) ⇒ stair (ascend) ⇒ landing/balcony ⇒ door (four)
- Weak; the entry sequence is hidden from street; emphasis is on tenement block identity
