In addition to providing shelter, the house is a complex created to provide various services and supply the needs of residents. Paying attention to meet satisfaction is significantly vital while determining the residence location. Residential satisfaction is obtained when a person’s needs are met by the place. Since people are the most fundamental factor in architecture, considering residential satisfaction and investigating the influential factors in its improvement is vital for the architects and designers. The criteria for estimating satisfaction in four aspects of physical, human, functional, and contextual were considered in the current paper to investigate satisfaction improvement and its influential factors. Various and influential factors on satisfaction are studied using this comprehensive classification, and studying sub-sets of each one of these aspects includes an extensive range of the effective factors on residential satisfaction. A questionnaire was distributed in the Elahieh Residential Complex to study these factors better. The reason for selecting this complex was their retired and employed academic residents that are gathered in a complex from different parts of Tehran. Therefore, they have different tastes and perspectives. First, satisfaction and its influential factors were studied. Then, the questionnaire was analyzed, and the influential factors on satisfaction were ranked. According to the obtained results, the physical aspects such as green space, accesses, collective space, landscape and view, and the dimensions of the residential units are of the most importance. Then, the contextual aspects (Hygiene and complex maintenance, preferring living in a complex to a single house), human aspects (social interactions and neighborhood), and functional aspects (recreational-commercial services and facilities) are ranked, respectively.
