Having manifold emotional, behavioural, and physiological changes in their lives, postpartum women experience negative impacts on their thought, feeling, behaviours, and relationships with others. Some women need special rehabilitative spaces to reduce the negative impacts of postpartum depression. Architectural solutions with designated spatial provisions may help postpartum women to curb the negativity during their confinement stage. Hence, this research intends to analyse the spatial requirement of confinement facilities based on precedent studies that support the psychological and physical needs of postpartum depression women. This research was conducted using a qualitative approach, where precedent studies of postpartum confinement centres were analysed and compared via table research to generate spatial requirements for the effective rehabilitation of postpartum depression women. Researchers conducted interview sessions with experts to substantiate the finding of earlier comparisons. Researchers hoped that the finding of this research could outline the optimum spatial requirements for the design of a confinement centre to support the psychological and physical needs of postpartum depression women, especially those in Malaysia. The research would also serve as a platform for an effective architectural solution for reducing the negative impacts of postpartum depression among women.</p> Fadzidah Abdullah Liyana Yusoff Mohd Raziff Abd Razak Zeenat Begam Yusof Aida Kesuma Azmin Copyright (c) 2021 Journal of Architecture, Planning and Construction Management 2021-12-30 2021-12-30 11 2 DAYLIGHTING AND VISUAL COMFORT STUDIES OF DESIGN STUDIOS IN FACULTY BUILDINGS <p class="Abstract">Daylighting is an effective method in creating a comfortable visual environment and energy efficiency in university buildings. The potential for energy savings through daylighting studies is great was investigated using a case study approach on the three design studios in KAED Building, International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM). The methodology simultaneously undertook field measurements and opinion surveys in the studios facing north, south, and northwest. Daylighting measurements using the Lux-Meter and calculations of the lighting energy consumption were conducted. The questionnaire survey was distributed to the users of the studios to assess their opinions on visual comfort. The results showed that the lighting levels were not up to the required standard. However, the lack of daylight did not hinder the users' visual comfort. The study proposed changing the existing less-efficient Fluorescent-T8 lamps to the more-efficient LED (light-emitting diode) lights for energy efficiency. Calculations on the annual energy consumption yielded a 40% reduction in the lighting bills and a payback period of around five years.&nbsp;</p> NOOR AZIAH MOHD ARIFFIN SABREEN M ELEYAN Copyright (c) 2021 Journal of Architecture, Planning and Construction Management 2021-12-30 2021-12-30 11 2
