On account of the increasing crime rates annually and the consequent rising anxiety, safety has become an important topic in the aspect of environmental formation to provide decent lives to urban dwellers. As a result, great emphasis has been placed in the importance of Crime Prevention through Environmental Design (CPTED), a design method which utilizes physical environmental design to prevent crime. The definition of CPTED encompasses the technological level of crime prevention as well as comprehensive environmental design which takes into consideration fear or terror in view of human recognition and emotion. However, the current application method of CPTED in Korea is still limited to the technical supplementation of facilities, such as CCTV and streetlight, and fragmental modification like village mural paintings. Moreover, the guideline for CPTED in Korea is only a theoretical adaptation of foreign books and does not offer sufficient studies for a practical design method that will improve the life of city dwellers. The purpose of this study is to examine design methods for safe environment construction in accordance with the changing concept of CPTED by understanding the characteristic of space and analyzing the how the methods of light are expressed. This study aims to provide basic material which will serve as a guideline in creating a safe environment in the future.
