    Abstract

    Open-plan office provides a spacious workspace for a wide range of work-related activities and a lot of chances to rearrange the workstation. In the workspace, a good lighting condition should be provided. Lighting is needed for work and it has a great impact on worker satisfaction, performance and productivity. For those purposes, light level must meet the minimum requirement for visual comfort. Luminous environment in office workspace will be assessed in different ways by the occupant. This research attempts to understand the effect of luminous environment at open-plan office on occupant satisfaction. The research was conducted through field study for measuring the ambient quantity of light and questionnaires for assessing occupant’s satisfaction and room performance. The research found that although illuminance level at workspace was very low and not evenly distributed, most the occupants felt quite satisfied. Room design, lighting strategies and the level of occupant’s perception may influence the results. Keywords : Luminous environment, office workspace, occupant satisfaction, room quality.
