Abstract This study aims to compare and analyze facility elements and user satisfaction regarding the before and after remodeling of the underground public pedestrian facility (UPPF) in Changwon Masan Habseong-dong. The purpose of this is to extract and present a remodeling effect that combines the physical and psychological aspects. An analysis framework was set up through literature surveys and field trips to research the physical factors in identifying the facility status while comparing the status and legal standards prior to and post remodeling accordingly. User consciousness research was also conducted through questionnaires involving complaints and facility improvement priority factors pre and post renovation. The results of this research indicated that 9 of the 17 criteria of the 'rules' were met before remodeling whereas 14 criteria were met after remodeling. Physical improvements such as light environment, thermal environment, toilet hygiene, construction, fire safety, accessibility, maintenance, sign system, and amenities were proven to have significantly enhanced user satisfaction. Remodeling also substantially improved walkways and shop elements. Elevators and escalators were installed at the entrances to improve access convenience, and walkways and square areas increased by 8.4 percent and 44.4 percent, respectively. The total area of shops decreased by 4.8 percent, and the number of shops decreased by 42.9 percent, resulting in a decrease in the proportion of shops in the net area from 45 percent to 40.9 percent. Comparing user satisfaction revealed the items with a satisfaction average of 0.5 or higher post remodeling were light environment, thermal environment, hygiene, fire safety, maintenance, sign system, amenities, sense of time, and beauty. On the other hand, mobility was the only item whose satisfaction average decreased by 0.5 or more after remodeling. Due to the improvements of facility elements through remodeling, technical performance satisfaction improved from 3.05 to 3.48, functional performance satisfaction from 3.38 to 3.73, behavioral performance satisfaction from 3.05 to 3.23, and overall satisfaction average increased from 3.14 to 3.44.
