居住環境バリアフリー化の視点からみた高齢者の住宅における台所空間の実態と満足度評価 ACTUAL CONDITION AND EVALUATION OF SATISFACTION OF KITCHEN SPACE FOR THE ELDERLY FROM THE VIEWPOINT OF BARRIER-FREE ENVIRONMENTAL DESIGN
The purpose of this study is to evaluate elements of kitchen space from the viewpoint of a barrier-free environment for the elderly. There are two aspects in barrier-free design, physical and sensory aspects. Although there has been a lot of research from the viewpoint of freedom from physical barriers, there has been little research on freedom from sensory barriers. We conducted a questionnaire survey of elderly and middle-aged subjects. The results can be summarized as follows:<br> 1 In terms of a barrier-free kitchen space, satisfaction with the thermal environment rates is worst out of several sensory factors for the elderly.<br> 2 Satisfaction with the thermal environment of summer is lower than winter.<br> 3 To achieve barrier-free kitchen design for the elderly, it is necessary to seriously consider to prevent heatillness in summer.
