このタグは、異なる用途で建設された建物には使用しないでください。代わりに building:use=apartmentsbuilding:use=residential が利用できます。ヨーロッパや北米ではとても古い、ふつう19世紀の建物が、集合住宅に転用されていることがあります。よくある例としては、古い倉庫、工場、パブ、教会などです。もともと設計されていた用途と現在の利用状況とを分離すると、より見つけやすくなりますが、建物の形に対してはるかに多くの情報が与えられることになります。



This is an attempt to show some of the variety of buildings which can be tagged as apartments.

Ideally this section would also include examples of associated tags, such as those for Simple 3D Buildings.

Original Use Image Comment
Tower The Quadrangle, Norfolk Crescent (geograph 2681087).jpg A fairly typical tower block of apartments.
Tower HK Tai Koo Shing Horizon Gardens.jpg The Taikoo Shing development on Hong Kong Island involved placing a large number of tower apartment blocks above a large shopping mall.
Modern Complex St. George's Wharf.jpg This complex of luxury apartments on the South side of the Thames provides a challenge if one wanted to tag it in detail.
Mansion Block Du Cane Court, SW17 - geograph.org.uk - 285412.jpg Probably a type largely restricted to London, and built between Victorian times & WWII.
Viennese Tenement Block Karl-Marx-Hof 2009.jpg Karl Marx Hof, an enormous development of social housing built between WWI & WWI
Glasgow Tenements Partick - geograph.org.uk - 299107.jpg During the 19th & early 20th centuries much urban housing for all social classes in Scotland was built as tenements. Usually two to each floor sharing a common stair. These in Partick may have originally been small 2 room tenements without private toilet facilities.


It is not uncommon for buildings to be converted into apartments. These have been included to provide further examples of places used for apartments and to show the difference in tagging. Some examples:

Original Use Image Comment
Church Christ Church Flats, Kew Road - geograph.org.uk - 219419.jpg Original building a church. Converted into apartments 1996.way 158513353.
In this case use building:use=apartments and building=church for the original usage.
Maltings Student Accommodation - geograph.org.uk - 127088.jpg Original building a maltings. Converted into studio apartments for students by the university (a hall of residence). Choice of using a generic tag building=industrial or a specific one building=maltings.
Pub The Gregory, a pub converted to student flats (geograph 3746272).jpg A former pub, also converted into studio apartments for students by a private landlord.
In this case use building:use=apartments and building=pub.


Apartments present specific issues when mapping addresses. In the absence of indoor mapping of the blocks the current widely accepted method is to assign addresses to the main entrance for each group of flats or in a less refined approach to the building object as a whole. The main entrance is mapped with entrance=main, and one of the following combinations of addresses applied (depending on whether apartments numbers are part of the street sequence or not):


Given the wide range of different apartment blocks, it is useful to add some additional building tags, such as:
