I’m researching ‘New housing environment for young professional singe person households in Seoul’. The research analyses the residential environment of the young solo dwellers, gaining an understanding of their city living experiences and their aspirations for new housing. Furthermore, it provides a basis for recommending potential alternatives in the development and design of new housing for them.
