The living condition in the traditional residential area is poor. For a long time, residents have continuously transformed the original space according to their own needs, showing a continuous living state, at the same time, forming a complicated and chaotic status quo. Compared with the historical buildings, the living state and block morpho of the traditional residential areas have higher protection value.
