Abstract

To design apartment houses that support residents' health-related concerns and activities is one of the contemporary architecture issues in Korea. People who are interested in promoting well-beings likely want homes that are conductive to promoting good health. Health behaviors and interests of Koreans are changing, and this study was encouraged by these trend changes. This research is based on a questionnaire given to 1181 people who are in their twenties through their sixties and living in Seoul. The types of Korean lifestyle were divided into four categories, active-sociable lifestyle, negative-introvert lifestyle, conservative-self esteem lifestyle and positive-fashionable lifestyle. Of these four lifestyles, conservative-self esteem lifestyle and positive-fashionable lifestyle were found to be the mostly healthinterested population.
