The reduction of energy consumption on air conditioning in sustainable buildings of subtropical areas is a
critical issue. However, noises can be transmitted easily in semi-open living space due to the necessity to
utilize natural ventilation in buildings. In order to avoid the noise and promote the privacy of Inhabitants in a
semi-open living space, a specific type of Background Music(BGM)+Soundscape system was applied into
this experimental sustainable building (Symbiosphere1Center). Furthermore, the physiological and
psychological evaluation of Background Sound+Lighting(BGS+L) system for symbiotic living environment
were carried out. The project was carried out by four participants who live in the urbanization area, but they
were situated in Symbiosphere 1 Center for experiment. The evaluation of experiment was measured for 3
days after their arrival. In order to compare the difference, the other two long-term residents were as the
contrast group. The evaluation of experiment was measured in the length of 60 min. per test at immobile
time for 3 days. The psychological evaluations were obtained by the 6 semantics analyze that are included
comfortable, relaxed, etc. Moreover, the physiological reaction is measured by using a Ryodoraku detector
of Traditional Chinese Medicine. The results show a positive effect of psychological reactions in BGM
environment. The participants' reactions become more comfortable, stable, relaxed, and joyful of the
psychological assessment. However, the Ryodoraku reactions are affected after 30 min exposed but not in
the long-term exposed. The evaluations of Ryodoraku values of four short-term exposed participants were
obtained and exceeded the health range at the first day, but their Ryodoraku values of meridians were
obviously improved and recuperated to the health status in Symbiosphere 1 Center at the second and third
day. However, the Ryodoraku values of two long-term exposed participants whose Ryodoraku values of
meridians are within the health range. The results show Symbiosphere 1 Center provides the possibility for
living in health in comparison with the situation of living in the urbanization area.
