We studied the actual livability of annex-added housing built by Japan Housing Corporation. Japan Housing Corporation started to supply alpharoom-added housing in 1987, and in recent years, Urban Renaissance Agency started to supply annex-room-added housing as an improved alpharoom-added housing. This paper suggests these types of housing can create the space which offers the residents independence, flexibility, privacy, and so on.
