Comparing Building Exteriors Design Perception Regarding the Integration in an Urban Preservation Area

Derbel M. Rami and Mishima Nobuo

Abstract—The purpose of this paper is to deepen understanding of the variables working in the perception process of a newly integrated building in an urban heritage area. The paper examines user’s perceptions of the newly designed building façades from the angle of insertion in its environment. We tried to understand how physical features impact on perception of building insertion quality. On that purpose, we conducted a survey on architecture students familiar with the site. The analyses of the research-helped de highlight relevant variable when designing a new building in an urban heritage area. This article reviews formal and symbolic variables in order to find out the correlation with the evaluative Reponses. We scope our research regarding the insertion of a building in an urban heritage area and we focus in especially with the building exteriors in the mean of producing design recommendation based on aesthetic variables.

Index Terms—Integration, perceptional study, urban heritage area, façade design.
