Abstract

In densely populated cities, rapid urbanization has accelerated the development of the built environment, which may change residents' lifestyles and have a great impact on their mental health. As pointed out by many researchers, the built environment is designed to make residents get more happiness, not just physically but also psychologically. Taking a case study in China, field visits were conducted to four small-scale communities in Shenzhen. By observing and conducting interviews with 47 respondents, the study aims to explore the practical problems and influential factors in the living environment and to understand perceptions of residents based on residential well-being. The study also investigates the relationship between the overall residential well-being and the positive affect, to further understand the effects of different emotional aspects on residential well-being, which is expected to provide a new direction for the future community design.
