This paper highlights the role of Space Syntax as a method to analyze spatial quality in Low-income Housing (L-iH) in Malaysia. Low-income Housing (L-iH) schemes such as the People’s Housing Project (PPR) have been one of the government’s approaches in coping with housing shortage in the Klang Valley. These L-iH schemes have been reported to be unsatisfactory to the inhabitants’ comfort, social and cultural needs. It is therefore crucial to investigate the relationship between space and the occupants by assessing the indoor space visibility using Visual Graph Analysis (VGA) as part of Space Syntax method, as the analytical tool to improve the future designs of L-iH that will benefit the occupants, policymakers, low-income house developers and consultants, researchers in the architecture field, and society at large. © 2022, University of Malaya.
