Following this trend, many hospitals are making efforts, such as renovating hospice wards, but architectural criteria are not sufficiently suggested for specialized hospice wards.The purpose of this study is to present the research data to improve the quality of hospice ward in general hospital . Data collecting skills such as drawing documents analysis, interviews, observation were used to examine the condition of hospice ward. And, case study method was used to generate the design data which can be used for the appropriate spatial composition and the area calculation
The purpose of this study was to analyze the Comparative Study to extract the spatial factor of Hydro-therapy complex in the health spa facilities that was composed of the Hydro-therapy space, sport space, leisure space, lodging space, adminstration space.The results of this study were as follows ; the hot spring complex in korea can be converted into the hydro-therapy complex.

This paper try to provide basic and universal concept of the architectural planning for the barrier-free environment. To accomplish this purpose this study has analyzed inductively the architectural requirements for all kinds of people with disabilities. The Analysis showed a safety, an accessibility and a distinguishment as the concept of architectural planning for the people with disabilities. Based on the findings of the study have been researched the general cases done for the barrier-free architectural environment. As the result, it has been proved that the design concept for the disabled person should be regarded as the basic concept of the general architectural planning.
The elements of a medium for gathering the able bodied and the disable bodied children are examined within the scope of this study. Starting from the importance of play for the children, the characteristics and the properties of middle childhood are chosen as domain.

The play spaces and the playgrounds including the equipment are examined. The results of study suggest there be creatived planning items in terms of accessibility and domain, which, in detail, are summarized in following six points; Accessibility, Barrier-free, convenience, movement, safety, domain.
