|The objective of this study was to contribute to the improvement of small-scale housing, which has been constructed since the mid-1980s.
Through an analysis of the evolution of small-scale housing, this study identified urban and architectural issues associated with existing
structures, as well as institutional barriers that hinder small-scale housing improvement. In response, a comprehensive plan was proposed to
revitalize small-scale housing improvement, with a focus on increasing business feasibility and enhancing public appeal, including diverse
usage options, street revitalization, and community recovery. To ensure the economic viability of housing improvement projects, it is
necessary to revise the limitations on the floor area ratio. An analysis of virtual land indicated that the floor area ratio could be increased by
up to 350%. However, it is recommended to restrict the application of increased floor area ratios to housing improvement projects within city
blocks, which can contribute to enhancing public appeal by incorporating underground parking facilities, mixed-use developments, and
community spaces. Additionally, cost reduction measures for underground parking installation were proposed, such as revising parking lot
regulations and promoting joint construction initiatives involving the local government. The feasibility and public appeal of small-scale
housing improvement projects were proactively assessed through an analysis of comparable development cases. This study is expected to
inform policy revisions and legislation for future revitalization efforts concerning small-scale housing improvement projects.
