The housing complexes built during this time were aged and the living environment became worse as well as the residential satisfaction. Although unit households were being remodeled personally to improve the residential performance and satisfaction until now and the open space and community space was provided, as well as the importance of the space for convenience, such as parking or trash processing space, included in exterior space of residential complex was also growing, improvement was necessary but still hard to be carried out. So in this study, investigation on the exterior space was made focused on Jixiang Housing Complex in Shenyang. Improvement strategies and implications for the living environment were also suggested.
