Living space is integration of population's spiritual forces, value-based attitude to the place of residence. It is continuous, filled with the population’s experience of their identity. Living space of the city is differentiated by socio-cultural dissimilarities of inhabitants, by meanings of symbolic appropriation of the territory. The government considers the city in projections of resources. Citizens view their city as a "place" for comfortable living. All meanings are symbolically formed, they define a visual image of the city's space. Authors present the results of a comparative analysis of social and living space from the standpoint of resources distribution, vital energy, management and maintenance of life support system, which is designed to meet the needs of different categories of citizens in projections of the sphere of everyday life, culture, and professional activity. Socio-cultural environment reproduces differences, which requires a system of life support to differentiate services, to adapt to the needs of residents. City's socio-cultural space is a symbolic territory where subsystems of traditional and professional types of life support combine the personnel potential and experience of self-sufficiency culture. Averaging of professional life support system technologies cannot meet the needs of unique (ethnic, age, subcultural) groups of citizens. Contradictions between environment potential, human resources and services of the system designed for an average consumer are usually solved through converging of the two types of systems on the positions of human-centricity. Smart city with a functioning life support system is a city for people's life, focused on resource-saving technologies (smart and human). The concept of resource saving means a sustainable attitude to intellectual, vital resources, as well as resources for population reproduction, which (developing from traditional practices) turn into professional care for the needs of citizens in professional demand, leisure, and consumer products. Modern social interactions of urban "non-formals", street culture, new types of home leisure, ecological, political, religious forms of leisure activity require sociological understanding. It is relevant to develop technologies for servicing such needs by life support system. Satisfaction with leisure, full and high-quality completeness of free time is an indicator of social well-being of people in living space.
