  Paying attention to the meaning of territory in residential design affects the arrangement of built environment and bases it on the family members’ main needs. The paper tries to recognize the specific functions of each family in various spaces in order to understand cultural traits and subjective terri tories of the family. Then supposing that one spatial territory is Adjacent to the other, the influences of the three senses (sight, smell and hearing) of that territory on the other are surveyed. For the sake of “radiation transmission” or “radiation absorption” the interactions of two territories are determined by recognizing the daily activities of family members within the transmitted and absorbed spectrums of rays of each sense.

  To achieve a level of independence required by each territor y, by defining the a dmissible effects, the efficient limit expressing percentage of adjustment for adjacency consistency and preparing desirable independence is determined. Value of necessary junctures can be obtained by comparing this limit with the spectrum of junctures.

Therefore the achieved diagrams for each sense express the range of the proper juncture in the adjusting procedure for those two spatial territories. The adjacency quality of two zones can be evaluated by regarding to the number of proper junctures and the value of separation . Using the method presented in this paper, the acceptable linear, planar and spatial junctures for separation of two zones can then be obtained in order to attain desirable independence.
