Providing indoor comfort conditions at optimum level in educational buildings increases the concentration, the desire for learning and occupants’ performance. The learning environment’s appeal for students and teachers are mostly derived from their visual and aural sensations. So, properly-designed lighting and acoustic conditions have become an important concern. Daylighting is a component of energy saving strategy. It provides visual performance and comfort to support executing tasks, additionally to achieve aesthetic and occupants’ appraisal of the physical environment. However, too high background noise and low intelligibility lead to disturbance in hearing and understanding. Such problems mainly cause the lack of concentration, which disturb occupants’ satisfaction with the indoor acoustic environment. Both students and lecturers raise their voices to communicate better when there is poor reverberation and clarity. Yet, measures and precautions to improve one aspect are not enough. Designers/researchers can establish an integrated approach to deal with the aspects of daylighting and acoustics under common design criteria; since, one design alternative developed to improve sound distribution modifies the visual performance either in an effective way or in an unfavorable way. It is necessary to propose common design alternatives, such as ceiling geometry, seating layout and material combination to conclude simultaneous enhancement in visual and acoustic performance. To achieve that, this thesis presents analyses of DIALux and ODEON models of a lecture hall proposing design component choices for ceiling geometry, seating layout, and material combinations. Simulation findings direct out attention to how to design a lecture hall in an integrated approach.
