AbstractStudies were made to assess the importance of window access to office worker satisfaction with lighting. Physical and questionnaire data were collected from 95 workstations at an open-plan office building in Michigan, USA. The physical measurements encompassed thermal, lighting, and acoustic variables, furniture dimensions, and an assessment of potential exterior view. Occupants answered a detailed questionnaire probing environmental and job satisfaction, and aspects of well-being such satisfaction with management and compensation. These data were used to test, via mediated regression, a model linking the physical environment, through environmental satisfaction, to job satisfaction and other related measures.
