Comfort is a very complex subject and can be viewed as a physical, psychological, and socio- cultural element in the design of the living or working space.The relationship between architecture and people is very multiplex and its quality is perceived through pleasantness. Contemporary approach in architecture is defined for energy efficiency and environmental responsibility and thus introduces new space organization schemes, functional patterns, and design and construction technologies, mainly requiring creation of new materials.But the process is bi-directional; apart that architectural solutions meet human needs they create new ones. Comfort is also associated with human health.According to the World Health Organization, human health is defined not just as the absence of disease but in terms of a total sense of physical, mental and social well-being. In order to find the criteria for comfort assessment, it is necessary to identify all factors that affect the users and their... experience of space. Factors that cause people’s dissatisfaction in the working or living space are defined as stressors. The paper refers to the consideration of the influence of some elements of design and construction of office buildings on the feeling of comfort of employees.The research is focused on assess how employees evaluate the achieved comfort in the case of different office types and facade technologies.This research discusses the questionnaire created by authors in order to clarify the sources of stressors, and the effects that these stressors have on human behaviour, to his personality, especially on oral hygiene.
