MACHINE-GENERATED SUMMARY NOTE:
"In office design, Social sustainability is often disregarded to meet the parameters of other sustainable development components. While comfort is crucial when attaining a socially sustainable design, this thesis puts in crisis the term ‘comfort’, commonly misused to describe the look and feel of a design rather than its qualities concerning health and safety for the user. Diverse factors affecting indoor environmental quality are listed and extensively explained. Furthermore, four office layouts are discussed through the scope of social sustainability examining the occupant’s physical and physiological comfort. The information obtained via these investigations is further utilised to complete a design proposal in which office occupant comfort is promoted and enhanced through suitable design measures and occupant-aware building services. This thesis concludes there is no universal layout suited for all occupants and offices, but the clever combination of suitable design methods fitted to the needs of office occupants and their environment can result in a fruitful office design that promotes productivity and comfort.
RESEARCH QUESTION: What elements of interior design affect office occupant’s comfort and how can these be used to promote it?"
