In result of global changes like globalization, technologic development and increasing migration, the world population becomes more and more homogeneous but countries local populations, in contrast, become more heterogeneous often causing problems and rising questions for political debates. One of the most significant factors of migrants’ wellbeing is proper housing. So, there is a growing body of different housing studies but interdisciplinary research with applying, for example, psychological approach, are clearly insufficient. The current research attempts to expand upon previous studies based on user-values – housing attribute relationship, into investigating the effects of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs and three biological formations in human’s brain on residential space attribute preferences for three different cultural groups, namely, Czech, Turkish and Russian.
