This study focuses on the social problems such as aging and nuclear family in our society, and aims at carrying out basic research for the new residential culture plan corresponding to this socail phenomenons. The subject of this study is $Unit{\acute{e}}$ d'Habitation in Marseille, a French public collective housing designed by architect Le Corbusier. Among the important national ideologies that the French government has built through the long history and cultural growth, the theme of 'Residence' is not only a residence but a foundation of citizen welfare. In this context, the value of $Unit{\acute{e}}$ d'Habitation as common collective housing is very high because it presents the spirit of citizen welfare pursued by the country as residential community where various generations of households can coexist together. It is expected that the study on residential community, which is the subject of this study, will positively influence the presentation of a new residential culture for various subdivided generations of our society.
