Abstract

Research studies and related standards regarding human requirements in buildings have been mostly single-domain, focusing on one aspect (i.e., thermal, visual, auditory, olfactory) at a time. Nonetheless, there have been a number of research efforts assessing the effects of multiple indoor-environmental factors on occupant perception and comfort. These efforts must be taken into consideration while planning future research studies concerning the integrated assessment of multi-aspect indoor-environmental exposure situations. The present contribution provides an overview of a number of such studies. Thereby, we consider contributions that either specifically address the combined effects of multiple indoor-environmental variables or at least acknowledge the concurrent presence of these variables. The review expands on motivational background, methods for data collection and analysis, and findings of the selected studies. The entailed reflections on the current state of the art and the existing knowledge gaps in the multi-aspect indoor-environmental exposure topic provide pointers to future research needs.
