2014 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
Today, there is a significant amount of research projects focusing on human health and well-being and the connection between the environment and human psychological responses. Perceived comfortable environments have a strong connection with humans when sensory communication and socio-cultural aspects are included in the design. Here, comfort is seen as an achievement not an attribute. Holistic approaches are emerging to integrate operators, control room communications and well-being with comfortable interiors. This paper illustrates the shifting focus of environmental design to environmental comfort design and discusses the socio-cultural aspects of comfort and the sensory communication aspects of environmental comfort design considerations for future control room interiors.
