dc.description.abstract Perimetral residential buildings are mostly related with the rapid expansion of urban settlements that followed the ignition of the industrial era at the beginning of the 18th century. This historic event was no part of sociopolitical development of the Albanian society of the time. Nevertheless this typology became present in similar situations during the socialist period as an available solution in order to provide qualitative urban spaces. As a poly functional urban entity, the perimetral block, was proposed in different situations, in terms of space and time. This paper aims to consider the different articulations of perimetral residential buildings present in Tirana city and their impact on the urban implant of the city. The apartment inside the perimetral block represents some specific characteristics. It differs in many ways from those present in linear configuration or tower like ones. The apartment typology and its impact on social life and on life quality in general, are some other topics of this paper. en_US
