Like all things in the State, housing is allocated based on contribution to society. This is determined by job placement. The only exception is partnerships, at which point the individual with the higher ranked job will dictate which area or zone the family will live in. While higher ranking jobs will position an individual closer to the center of the city, residences in each zone vary in size to accommodate both single persons and families.
Wynter Reeves resides with her mother, Evandra Reeves, in a terraced house in Zone 2. This area is for wealthier citizens of the Heart. At one point, they lived in a larger home closer to the border of Zone 1, but after the death of Wynter's father, Freston Reeves, their housing allocation was downsized.
