          Abstract

          Housing reconstruction cases without cultural sensitivity had resulted in rejection. These raise challenges to understand the importance of cultural background and how it affects residents’ lifestyles. This study investigated self-built and donated housing through on- field research with questionnaires, interviews, and field observations. Items related to dwelling usage, behaviour adjustments, evaluation and community activities participation were obtained. Results suggest that residents adjust their physical behavioural aspects to maintain previous social behaviour lifestyles, though evaluations indicate dissatisfaction with the unchangeable donated housing design. Social interactions importance, flexibility and open-ended design in housing are advantageous for their post-disaster recovery.
