Investigating Housing Indicators in Built Environment (Based on Human Needs)
Zahra Yaghoobloo, Sima Najafi‎
Pages: 76-87


Architectural design in the modern era requires an understanding of human environments. ‎Investigating the elements that make human beings, in the form of identity and social ‎spaces, become an integral part of that body is a valuable point of interest in architectural ‎designs. Housing has always provided human shelter. In contemporary architecture, housing, ‎due to physical nature and presentation of spaces‏ ‏qualitatively, has attracted the attention of ‎architects and experts alike, because, in addition to the nature of space, it has neglected to ‎understand the behavior and reaching the human spirit. Addressing these factors can move ‎the design of residential architecture toward the desirability and growth of built spaces. ‎Residential spaces are shaped in three categories of open and semi-open spaces. ‎Understanding human needs based on this category and providing a sustainable model for ‎living in that body requires the architectural design to understand this field.‎ Research Criteria: In this study, identifying the effective components and impact of ‎residential complexes on human relationships such as 1) recognizing the factors affecting ‎satisfaction, 2) examining the satisfaction level of an environment, 3) discovering the ‎relationship between satisfaction with an environment and its impact on people's ‎relationships are the important factors to consider.‎ Methods: In this study, a qualitative research method and diagrams related to data analysis ‎and descriptive and analytical structure, the characteristics of built housing were used. Next, ‎based on field observations, the questionnaire in the residential area will be analyzed using ‎SPSS 21 to investigate the goals of the built body. Finally, with the correlation analysis ‎method, the data will be summarized and the results presented.‎ Research Results: It seems that by considering the desirability indices in built ‎environments, we will reach the appropriate housing and physical components for humans. ‎Considering the findings and meeting human needs in residential areas dependent on the ‎recognition of environmental capabilities including activity, visual, physical and spiritual ‎and physical comfort, these factors in the physical form of residential complex improve the ‎quality of housing and physical environment based on meeting human needs‎.
