Abstract The purpose of this study is to compare and evaluate the aspects of remodeled and reconstructed apartment housing units with which users are satisfied or dissatisfied. Five apartment housing units with an area of 85 m² more or less remodeled between 2007 and 2013 in Seoul and five reconstructed apartment housing units also in Seoul with a similar size and reconstruction completion time were selected. A comparative analysis was conducted of characteristics appearing in unit household floor plans. Post-occupancy evaluation (POE) was conducted on occupants over the age of 19 who had lived in each housing unit for more than a year. The floor-plan analysis revealed that the number of bays was higher in the reconstructed apartment housing units; the remodeled apartment building having a longer vertical shape, and the reconstructed apartment building had a slightly longer horizontal shape. The area of the private space was larger for the reconstructed housing units, and the area of the public space was larger for the remodeled housing units. The POE revealed that the overall satisfaction average was higher for the reconstructed apartment housing units. As for the eight items pertaining to natural lighting, air quality in general, natural ventilation, temperature in summer, temperature in general, layout and size of personal space, interaction between family members, and overall satisfaction, satisfaction was relatively high for reconstructed apartment housing units. For the visual privacy item, the satisfaction of the remodeled apartment building was relatively high. There was a significant difference between remodeled housing units and restructured housing units, particularly in satisfaction related to natural ventilation and natural lighting. The regression analysis indicated that natural lighting had the most significant influence of any factor on overall satisfaction. These results could improve the remodeling of apartment housing in the future.
