Over time, urban developments with increased densities have led to a decrease in private open space with a lack of public open space. Residential open spaces are missing in housing legislations as they are estimated based on floor area ratio and building coverage ratio, whereas they cannot be used as an all-encompassing measurement tool. Moreover, it is important for designers to consider housing layout to ensure a pleasant environment for residents; eventually, a range of benefits and… CONTINUE READING
