In Korea, one person households are increasing but in short supply of small-scaled housing for them. The merits of containers such as short construction duration, simple construction, economical efficiency and easy recycling can satisfy the needs of affordable households. The purpose of this study is to propose the planning of "the small-scaled Container Housing" through the analysis by case studies. Other countries around the world already have a variety of container housing types. France made a tangible accomplishment which is a Student Housing called "Cit A Docks", which was made out of old shipping containers. It is composed of modular housing units satisfying the every needs of housing. However, container architecture in Korea is only used as temporary architecture or makeshift structures such as a warehouse, temporary residence and construction office until now. And there is lack of the research on container housings. Therefore in this study we will analyze abroad cases based on consideration on plans of Container Housing such as common space, the number of households, height, area and flexible space. As a result, this study will suggest the module system and various methods of units-combining. The result of this study will be valuable to those who are interested in commercialization of container housing. Furthermore, it will be the foundation of developing the planning of small-scaled Container Housing.
