          Abstract

          This article analyzes changes of common space spatial characteristics in Japanese nursing homes in the past 35 years, aims to provide a reference for future common space design. The analysis is done by using Space Syntax theory. Totally 62 nursing homes from Japanese architecture publications are selected and analyzed. The analysis shows that compared with classical large-scale care nursing homes, the spatial integration of community space in modern unit care nursing homes is increased by 15%, but service station and dining room are reduced about 10% and 13%, which indicates the spatial importance of community space in modern nursing homes.
