Abstract

Housing is a component part of the way of life and culture of every social community. It always forms an organic whole with the modes of production and consumption, with the level of technological development, social system and spiritual values of that particular community. In discussing housing, one may talk about the habits and standards of housing. Housing habits have to do with the totality of design of the living quarters (functions of buildings and their parts, constructional properties of buildings, interior design, etc.), while housing standard have to do with the behaviour of inhabitants and their values in the sphere of housing. Changes in housing habits and standards are most closely connected with changes in economic and social relations in a given community.
