'Degraded' housing estates represent 9% share in urbanised surfaces of thirty-five towns recently researched in planning terms. Neighbourhoods built to the end of the 70's are most problematic since they are isolated, non-maintained, and inadequate with respect to modern standards. As witnesses of a shift in culture of living at the time of their construction and because of their scope and status of their physical structure nowadays (in which social problems are reflected) they cannot be replaced by new buildings. In the areas of town planning and urban design, architecture and civil engineering it is possible to trace tendencies towards individualisation, identification, integration, rationalisation, increase of safety, accessibility and flexibility that can be applied to the area of a narrow segment of apartment construction in sustainable awareness of eco-development.The research discussed re-directs the present abstract planning starting optics to concrete architectural – user level. The research is also indented to consolidate of the idea about the urgency of renewal as the only possible method of solving problems of a certain pattern of building (from various viewpoints), to determine criteria / measures for renewal and to determine rational /real directions for concrete contributions for the improvement of standard of living to a new shift in culture of living in the discussed settlement pattern.
