With the changing social structure in Hong Kong, more and more people become single or small-sized families, but the supply of public housing units for different household sizes has not changed for years, mainly due to the planar design approach that prioritizes spatial and economic efficiency. With the transition of basic component from family to individual, existing public housing policy and specifically the gross generalization of design approach should be reviewed. There is an urgency to develop a balanced and up-to-date system in the public sector.

People undergo status change from time to time in a lifetime, which can alter the way they use and their expectation toward a house. This thesis proposes a new strategy, using cubic manner, to design and evaluate the quality of space.
