The authors investigated the experimental project, Kodan Experimental Housing Project, which the Japanese Housing Corporation started in 1973, to research and develop the flexibility and adaptability of housing. The residents decided the layout of the free spaces, except the stairs and toilet on the second floor of some of the units. The movable partition wall on the second floor was confirmed to be effectively used by many households. It can be inferred that the concept of adaptability was effective, as many of the resident households had children of school age or younger.
