Abstract

Buildings should contribute to and renew their environment rather than drain them, much as plants and animals do when they adapt to their surroundings and participate in maintaining the ecosystem. Therefore, this study aimed to assess user satisfaction and perceptions of regenerative architecture in recreational centres, focusing on how these principles inform user-centred design and promote sustainable development while identifying areas for improvement. The research employed a two-fold approach, commencing with a theoretical study of regenerative architecture, followed by a quantitative method involving the distribution of structured questionnaires. These questionnaires sought to gather information from users within the study area, focusing on their satisfaction and perceptions regarding various aspects of regenerative architecture principles implemented in the recreational centres. A total of 120 questionnaires were distributed to the users of the recreational facilities, and the return rate was 87.5%. Purposive and random sampling techniques were used to select the recreational centres and the respondents respectively.  The responses were analysed using a Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) software. The study reveals a generally positive perception of regenerative architecture principles in the recreational centres, with users expressing satisfaction in various aspects related to the green spaces, design interaction, cultural expression visual appeal, air quality, and maintenance of the recreational centres.
