They are residential floors. Each is divided into four apartments.
Apartments are defined by colors. Each apartment has a specific color to help its residents to get back easily to their places.
Each apartment has 4 rooms, and each room has two residents.
There is also a reception hall in every apartment and by the door, there are the codes of each of its residents. The code is a symbol selected by the resident where it could be one of the saints, vehicles,birds,…etc with the picture of the resident attached to it. This code acts as a guide for the resident throughout the stay in Al Folk.
