Abstract

This paper aims to design an “individually controlled system” (ICS) for children in class-rooms based on their preferences and needs. It is well known that a higher satisfaction of in-door environmental quality (IEQ), including thermal, air, visual and acoustical quality, can be achieved by giving occupants control over their local environment. However, knowledge about individual control of IEQ in classrooms by children is still limited. Based on a field sur-vey conducted in in 21 primary schools (54 classrooms with children aging from 9 to 12) in The Netherlands and a lab study performed in the SenseLab (a semi-lab environment at the premises of the TU Delft) of circa 350 children of some of the schools studied, in which pref-erences and needs of pupils, as well as perception about control of their individual IEQ, were collected, the first prototype of an ICS to improve their local environmental quality will be designed.
