Abstract

- Interior layout design is the last but not the least phase of architectural design. Previous studies claim that interior layout design has direct association with user comfort and convenience. Although previous studies have investigated the association between interior layout design and user comfort, a comprehensive review on interior layout design parameters and sub-parameters affecting user comfort in energy efficient buildings has not been yet established. In this purpose, this research aimed to establish the interior layout design parameters and involved sub-parameters by conducting a systematic literature review. Searching all relevant literature on mentioned keywords via internet academic sources come up different journal papers, conference proceeding, and project reports. This involved in the Web of Science Citation Database, Proquest, Sciencedirect, Scopus, Pub Med and Medline. Then, content analysis of collecting literature was conducted. The systematic review resulted with three (3) Building Aspects parameters and thirty (33) involved sub-parameters, and three (4) User Aspects and twelve (13) involved sub-parameters. The finding aid professionals in architecture, building design and interior designed to enhance the energy efficiency of buildings considering user comfort.
