Abstract

Such affective impressions as the comfort and cleanliness of a residential space are crucial for its residents. Although it is sometimes difficult to maintain a good affective atmosphere in the inner-city area of a big city like Tokyo, the space’s appropriate structure might increase its impressions. To clarify the effect of a living room’s space structure, we designed and performed an experiment using scale models. This paper describes the experiment and its multivariate analysis results, which show that openness and comfort have a negative correlation despite employing an open structure in many narrow site houses, at least in Japan.
