Expansion of apartment living and collective settlementhas been considerable in recent decades in different cities of Iran. In urban development, with the increase of land price and particular problems,living at the floors is inevitable. It will bring many problems such as weakening of social interactions in the cities. In addition to these problems, designing these apartments would be so hard especially when talking about low-income settlements. Because we should decrease the cost of construction and design these apartments in such way to appropriating the fee for this people in the future. In this paper, the current status of the collective settlements in Kashan and social aspects of sustainable development will be studied. Accordingly, efforts to enhance the community's health, based on the two general ideas:At first, raising the possibility of social interaction between residents and at the second increase residents' opportunities for social relationships at higher levels.The development and implementation of both these ideas, certain provisions in residential building plans is required. Among them, the increase in public spaces in the floor plan and create spaces for social interaction as possible. It should be noted that it is differ from privatization. This research is trying to find ways to improve the design of apartments considering public health in Kashan.This paper focuses on the social aspects of sustainable development of settlements in Kashan.For this purpose Iran is investigated first, and then Kashan and then tells the nature of housing in this country. All these factors led us to design a residential complex for these people. For a more accurate evaluationthis sample - Kashan - has been investigated and interpreted in different aspects of economic, cultural, historical, geographical and religious.This project is designed for low-income peopleTherefore; we must bring down the costs for construction projects and designed in such way to appropriate for these people in terms of cost in the future. For the low cost in future some cases should be considered.
