Twin Tower (雙塔型) is a 1970s' design of residential block of Hong Kong public housing estate. The plan looks like two hollow squares joining one corner of each square. Two towers are of different heights although their shapes are the same. The flat sizes in these 20 to 23-storey towers ranged from 36 to 46 m2.[1]
