Recently international marriage has been increasing steadfastly in Korea and its diversity of nationality has been expanding also. Korean government and academic circles are actively studying on such trends in population to find out proper measures to cope with such social changes. But their studies on improving the residential environment that is the base of the essential three factors of life, clothing, food and housing are not sufficient enough. Therefore it is necessary to study in depth and diversity about the residential environments of multi-culture families that are the base of their life. It is necessary to comparatively study the residential status and demands of these immigrants by marriage. The purpose of this study is to comparatively study the residential status and demand of immigrant women by marriage according to their nationalities. The objects of this study are the immigrant women by marriage from China, Vietnam and Cambodia who take the high portion of immigrant women in Jeonju-si and survey was used as study method. The result of this study revealed that the general characteristics, residential status and demands of immigrant women showed certain differences and the direction of residential plans for them in future based on these differences was proposed. This study is meaningful as basic information to improve the residential conditions of the multi-culture families in order to enhance their quality of life in preparation for the coming society of multi-culture.

Professional management of multi-family housing to maintain physical environments was essential to cope with timeworn housings as the residents share various facilities and spaces therein altogether. Therefore, this research intended to collect the key aspects and items for efficient management of multi-family housing and such data and information was obtained partly by way of conducting survey of the residents therein. This research conducted survey 3 times questionnaire with the residents (n

Lee, Hyun-Jeong ;
Journal of the Korean housing association, volume 24, issue 4, 2013, Pages 29~37
DOI : 10.6107/JKHA.2013.24.4.029
The purpose of this study was to explore college students` expectations on post-college housing and sources of finance to afford housing costs; and perception of housing cost burden. Between May 28, 2012, and June 17, 2012, a questionnaire survey was conducted to undergraduate students in university-A located in non-capital region and 465 useable responses were collected. Major findings are as follows: (1) About 60% of respondents expected to live apart from their parents or relatives within two years from college graduation; (2) Majority of respondents who expected to live apart from their parents or relatives expected to rent housing units and compact non-traditional housing types such as studio units; (3) Major source of finance the respondents expected to afford post-college housing costs was financial supports from their parents and families; (4) Housing cost burden were perceived to have influence even on job decision and respondents with lower parents` income perceived housing cost burden more influential; and (5) In spite of respondents` low financial independence to afford post-college housing costs, finding housing units in areas with relatively lower housing costs seemed not to be an important consideration when choosing post-college housing.

Choi, Jung-Min ;
Journal of the Korean housing association, volume 24, issue 4, 2013, Pages 39~52
DOI : 10.6107/JKHA.2013.24.4.039
This study examined the key factors that significantly improved the demand of multi-habitation. It determined the factors at the macroscopic level (or push factors) and the microscopic level (or pull factors). Focusing on a microscopic viewpoint, this study looked at the process of settlement through investigating 78 MH residents in the Seoul metropolitan area. The survey included the questions, such as who they are, how they prepared for moving, and how much they enjoyed their rural lives. In addition, any differences in this process were analyzed depending on respondents` characteristics. Major findings are as follows: First, general macro-level circumstances seemed supportive for the MH lifestyles. Second, six keywords were determined to represent the recent MH trends. They are "semi-sedentism, clustering, young people, female, money, and policy". Third, the distances between the original towns for native residents and new second-home towns for MH residents affected the interactions among them. However, these two groups had better relationships when the second-home towns were apart from the original towns. I then considered the need of a buffer zone between the two residential areas for MH residents. The conceptual difference between MH residents (i.e., semi-sedentism) and original rural residents (i.e., sedentism) might require certain types of buffer zones to continue good relationships among them.

Apartments amount to 58.3%, the highest proportion of domestic housing types. These apartments` lifespan (approximately 27 years) are one-third of the developed countries` housing lifespan due to the property developers and mass production. It is significantly short-cycle period considering the original physical lifespan of the apartment housing are 60 years. It has caused economic loss and environmental degradation. In recent years, research and development for the long life of the apartment housing has been actively performed, but it is limited on reconstruction and new construction. Reconstruction of existing a number of high-rise apartments is difficult owing to restrictions on the floor area ratio allowing for 40 years limit of decay resistance after the completion. Improving lifespan of the building has recently begun to receive attention as an alternative to remodeling. However, These sort of remodeling techniques tend to be focused on technology developed for the physical life extension. That means developing the techniques about dwelling-unit environment for residents satisfaction are required as well as improving physical construction. The purpose of this study is to propose and verify the Participatory Design Technique which can help the residents as the active participation in the design decision-making process.

The purpose of this study is to provide information needed to the construction of the co-housing in the urban area. This study focused on the characteristics of co-housing in its planning process of private house & common space; `economy`, `creativity` & `sociality`. The object of this study is co-housing in `Seongmi-san Village` in Seoul, which was built by a coordination company with residents` participation. The methods are investigating interview materials, floor plans of 9 households, & common space plans produced in the coordination process from the basic plan of private house & common space to the final plan. The results are as follows. 1) The size and plan of private house differed from each other. The water pipe location differed from each floor, so that there were difficulties in construction. In conclusion, these made no `economy`, but brought high `creativity`. 2) The `sociality` would be estimated as high because there were various types of resident participation; resident interviews on the planning, workshops for private housing plan, and workshops for common space.

Being able to enjoy leisure time for adolescents is a necessary activity, for it helps them relieve their anxiety and stress and develop their potential. It is necessary to incorporate such spaces in the housing plans in advance and support diverse community activities. The current living spaces do not hold proper spaces and facilities for community activities appropriate for adolescents. Community facilities should be planned so as to reflect the needs of these adolescents, based on a clear survey in advance. The current study has conducted a survey to find out about the level of satisfaction and requests from adolescents on the leisure facilities their current living spaces hold. Based on this prior research, this study looks for solutions that could solve the issue at hand. The current community facilities are not convenient to support a diversity of leisure activities to the adolescents. The community facilities should be able to supplement information on the various activities put in place for the youth and widely supply the programs in demand. Furthermore, the adolescents wanted to form their own community within the facilities to practice their leisurely activities. We can safely assume that the youth`s desire for more community amenities will increase for their own development.

With the recent increase in the number of one- and two-person households, demand for small-sized apartments has been on the rise, and lifestyles have seen swift changes to cater to smaller-sized housing. The construction market is shifting toward small-sized apartments, and research is now needed on the lifestyles of those living in small-sized apartments in order to develop suitable housing units. Therefore, this study aims to produce a planning concept for housing units by lifestyle, categorizing residents based on lifestyle and identifying their LDK preferences. Regarding methodology, prior research was reviewed to validate housing-related lifestyle factors and study the lifestyles of those living in small-sized apartments. Lifestyle categories based on housing type were determined by a cluster analysis, and LDK preferences for each lifestyle were analyzed through a survey. These data were then used to propose a planning concept with small-sized apartments for each lifestyle type. Thirty-two factors for categorizing lifestyles were obtained by studying three domains of housing-related lifestyle factors: `housing values`, `attitudes toward living space`, and `behavior in living space; A total of 648 people living in small-sized apartments were classified into three lifestyle groups: `True Family Benefiters`, `Smart Shopaholics`, and `Slow Heritage Pursuers`. `Each group`s lifestyle characteristics and socio-demographic features were used to classify the lifestyles of those living in small-sized apartments. The LDK preferences for each lifestyle were analyzed to design a planning concept for small-sized apartment.
An Analysis of the Planning Characteristics of Elderly Welfare Housing Units and Their Ability to Meet Potential Residents` Needs
Lee, Youn-Jae ;
Journal of the Korean housing association, volume 24, issue 4, 2013, Pages 97~107
DOI : 10.6107/JKHA.2013.24.4.097
The purpose of this paper is to investigate the planning characteristics of certain cases of elderly welfare housing (hitherto EWH), and analyze any problems by comparing this against the actual needs of potential residents. To this end, 38 distinct housing plans from twelve EWH built after 2005 were examined, and a survey on housing needs was taken by 198 people between 48 and 62 years of age. The results are as follows: Firstly, the most common size found among the 10 cases was 42-66
, however larger sizes are becoming more frequent. The most popular response on the survey was one favoring smaller housing options. Secondly, the most common floor plan examined consisted of 1 bedroom + LDK and 2 bedroom + LDK. Likewise, the survey reflected that 1 or 2 bedroom housing was preferred. Thirdly, a floor plan composed of a smaller bedroom and LDK is commonly found in smaller floor plans of EWH. The survey reflected potential residents preferred this same style of floor plan, with a smaller bedroom and LDK set up. However, lower-income participants preferred a single, larger bedroom which also can serve as a living space, to go along with a kitchen/dining room (DK). Fourthly, 2 bedroom housing typically included a single bathroom, however the survey indicated that participants preferred a second bathroom to go along with a second bedroom. Consequently, the planning of elderly welfare housing is to a large extent meeting the demands of its potential residents, however house size and the planning of bathrooms have yet to meet these demands, especially with potential lower-income residents when it comes to housing size and space composition.

This study outlines the housing consciousness and needs of single woman household. In order to analyze housing consciousness of single woman household, surveys were conducted with the questionnaire composed of housing consciousness, housing needs, socio-demographic and housing characteristics of single woman household who lived in Seoul, and other near metropolitan area such as Gyeonggi and Incheon. The result of the study shows that single woman household put importance on safety, privacy, and comfort of their indoor housing environment. For single woman households convenience in transportation and facilities for leisure time were one of the important conscious factors. Housing consciousness of single woman household can be categorized into mainly three groups: (i) indifferent to overall housing consciousness except for convenient services such as front desk service at the lobby and maid house keeping services; (ii) privacy conscious group - this was the majority; (iii) relatively active housing consciousness group. Each type had different preference factors when selecting a house. That is, each showed difference preferences when considering types, sizes and services as well as motives for choosing a house.
