Abstract

The prospect-refuge is a concept to explain the preferred environment that provides restoration, concentration and safety, ultimately improving comfort. We focus on fenestration and ceiling height to provide the good prospect-refuge conditions simultaneously for interior spaces. The aim of this paper is to develop a design model by adjusting the window's design properties and ceiling height. Parametric design model and 3D visibility are employed to propose a method that quantify the prospect-refuge and presents the design alternatives of the window and ceiling. First, we explain parameters and an algorithm of a parametric model for measuring the 3D visibility. Second, this paper presents a way to generate design alternatives of the window and ceiling height. Finally, this research evaluates and analyses design alternatives of the window and ceiling height. With the parametric design technology for measuring prospect-refuge, proposed method could present various design alternatives in interior spaces, simultaneously considering the concept of prospect-refuge.
