Abstract

Households currently serve as people’s main living environment since householders spend approximately two thirds of their time there. Fulfilling of basic human needs and, in particular, higher level needs requires providing of sufficient living space. Some of the housing needs are not considered or are omitted by architects and designers as a result of various reasons. Many of the inconveniences emerge as early as at the designing stage, while others appear during the exploitation of a dwelling. Optimal usage qualities of a dwelling place are attainable not only thanks to its considerable size, elevating of the technical standard of the finishing and equipment, but also by increasing its functional efficiency. This paper provides an overview of current practices and take an aim at addressing functional ergonomics and spatial needs.
