what is the structural system of this apartment ?

So I am doing this university project and I have this old plans from an apartment that Im trying to remove some exterior walls but I can not find the structural system and cant relate to any I know previously since it seems to be an old apartment. I would appreciate if some can help me out and shed some light on this system.

RE: what is the structural system of this apartment ?

The plans you are showing appear to be preliminary architectural plans. You would need structural drawings in order to fully answer your question.

Most likely, the structural system is a two span continuous one-way slab bearing on three walls, two exterior and one interior, but without structural drawings, you would just be guessing. Removing significant portions of exterior walls is not a realistic goal.
