663 - 675
The purpose of this paper is to describe the quality of life in six major residential areas in Dhaka as part of a larger research project on residential satisfaction. The paper investigates people’s feelings about life with respect to their own living standards and life experiences, including their understanding and satisfaction with housing and the neighbourhood environment. The findings indicate the holistic, socio-physical neighbourhood environment as a significant contributor to residential satisfaction for the dwellers living in developer built medium-rise apartment buildings in Dhaka. It is also evident from the findings that socio-physical features of the neighbourhood and community influence life satisfaction more than strictly physical design features of individual dwelling.
