Abstract Translation of: Arbeitsklimatische Gesichtspunkte für Grossraumbüros. Gesundheits-Ingenieur, München, Germany (Fed.Rep.), July-Aug. 1975, Vol.96, No.7-8, p.184-189. Illus. (CIS 76-266). The interrelations between lighting, microclimate and noise in landscaped offices render close collaboration between the architect and specialists in these 3 disciplines necessary. Problems examined: lighting (relation between illumination level and daylight, heat production, glare, and influence of windows): microclimate (temperature distribution, supply and exhaust of air via the ceiling, cigarette smoke); acoustics (sound level up to 50-55dB(A), ceiling design, carpeting and furniture, electroacoustic production of background noise). Recommendations are made.
