Apartment complexes, being the most common housing option in Korea, are constantly changing following customer needs and differentiation strategies of construction companies. With increasing desire to live a better life in an environment-friendly manner, residents are starting to have interests in the outdoor space of the apartment complex and this leads to changes in the outdoor space both quantitatively and qualitatively. The purpose of this study is to provide lighting design data reflecting unique characteristics of various categories in outdoor space of branded apartment complexes based on the analysis of current lighting plans implemented. Outdoor space of branded apartment complexes in Seoul and Daegu, built after the year 2000, were researched. The outdoor space was segmented to entry area, passage area and community area. Through site visits, illumination level and lighting plans were studied by each category. With the results, illumination level of each area and KS illumination standard were compared and current lighting plans were analyzed. In most cases, illumination level of apartment complexes researched was lower than KS illumination standard in all categories. Lighting plans were not done in consideration of specific purposes of each category, either. By implementing the direction of lighting design suggested in this study, residents and visitors will be more satisfied with outdoor space and more lively atmosphere could be created.
