组: 建筑物

建作住宅的建筑物,分为独立的住宅/公寓/套房,通常位于不同的楼层。该标签既可用于出售公寓的建筑(在北美和泰国通常称为condominiums, condos或stratas),亦可用于出租公寓的建筑。

当建筑是为不同的原始用途而建时,不要使用这个标签,而可以使用 building:use=apartmentsbuilding:use=residential 标签。在欧洲和北美,许多老建筑,通常是19世纪的建筑,已经被改造成公寓。典型的例子包括:旧仓库、工厂(作坊)、多余的酒吧和教堂。将目前的用途与原来的设计用途分开,可以进行更复杂的搜索,同时也可以提供更多关于对建筑形式的期望的信息。



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
Residential tower The Quadrangle, Norfolk Crescent (geograph 2681087).jpg A fairly typical tower block of apartments.
Residential 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. See building:part=* for one of needed tools.
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 building itself that is still clearly a church building.
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:

  • building:flats=* : the number of residential units (flats, apartments) in the building
  • building:levels=* : the number of floors (including the ground floor) in the building
  • building:material=* : the outer surface (facade) material of the building (brick, concrete, wood etc.)


  • building=terrace for what is commonly referred to as "row houses", "townhouses", or "townhomes"
  • office=property_management for office of a company which manages a real estate property. Commonly referred to as "landlord", "renter", or "lessor".
