This study investigates the effect of lattice design on aesthetic evaluation of the view from the lattice. In this paper, we focused on the opening ratio and shape of the lattice, and conducted a subjective experiment on the aesthetic evaluation. The participants observed digital images of 93 types of view from the lattice and answered the aesthetic evaluation with an 11-point numerical rating scale. They also evaluated the impression of the view with a semantic differential method using 15 pairs of adjectives. A vertically long machiya (it means a Japanese traditional house) view led to high evaluations in 70% of the opening ratio, whereas the evaluations of the mountain view photos and the pier view photos from all types of lattice were higher as the value of the opening ratio increased. It was made clear that the impression of a view from the lattice was explained by “activity” and “familiarity”.
