Abstract

Quality of infill design in historical district has been debating for recent decades, the degree of replication and contrast in building features to achieve visual harmony, still is an issue that experts and public involving with it. For designing a new building in historical context an important aspect is considered contextual design. Previous studies have focused on compatibility of new buildings and their surroundings but none of them focused on the historical district that need to preserve cultural values. This study tries to compare preference ratings of experts and residents in the contextual relationship between the new building and historical surroundings and the degree of replication from context to the new infil design. Methodologically, a case study approach was adopted and 100 experts and 204 residents of historical context participated in the survey. The findings of this research show that among experts and residents although there are differences in degree of replication in building cues, but both groups have rated same to some physical elements. The findings of this research can give better understanding in formulating the frameworks toward establishing the design guidelines for architectural intervention in such urban historic environment.
