 The restrictions available in metropolis extend the construction of residential complexes and reduce the percentage of private court in contemporary architecture. In addition to supplying the light of interior places and natural ventilation, residential open space is considered an opportunity to have more relationship with nature and a place for social interactions. Upward to the limitation of internal space in residential units and its relation to exterior space, traversing up and recognizing the current land of open spaces will result in designing the residential open spaces more consciously in the hereafter. In countries such as Iran, which have started and proceeded to build residential complexes using western models, the open spaces of residential complexes don’t create enough belonging feeling in residents. In this research, we try to analyze the key components of the quality of open residential spaces in relation to design in the urban spatial organization approach.
