Taking the traditional residential street space in Pingtan Comprehensive Experimental Area as an example, the factors influencing the formation and development of lane space and the distribution characteristics of lanes were analyzed in this paper. Subsequently, an analysis was conducted on the scale and proportion of street and lane space enclosed in the settlement, the experiential aspects of street and lane space, as well as the node space. Lastly, a systematic summary of the street space characteristics in the settlements of Pingtan Island and Dongxiang Island is presented.
