Abstract
This paper proposes ‘Skycourt Apartment’ as a solution for more socially sustainable high-rise
residential and considerably more cost-effective in comparison with Malaysian conventional affordable
apartments. The provision of skycourt is proven to be a socially sustainable and environmentally viable option
for high-rise living, as numerous previous researchers have shown the potential for this green communal space.
The principal contribution of this paper includes the cost feasibility validation of skycourt apartment prototype
to be applied specifically in Malaysia’s affordable apartment typology. The validation process is carried out by
having a comparison of Bill of Quantity between the proposed prototypes of skycourt apartment with a selected
conventional affordable apartment in Johor Bahru as the base comparator. Both buildings are modelled in Revit
before cost simulation is employed on each of the Building Information Model as the tool to generate the Bill of
Quantity. The result shows that the proposed skycourt prototype design is feasible to be applied in affordable
apartment typology in Malaysia. The prototype design is potentially useful for application in the Malaysian
affordable housing scheme and thus could benefit economically to the stakeholders involved.

Key words: Skycourt; High-rise Residential; Building Information Modelling; Cost feasibility
