summary The Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP), which is explained and applied in another article in the same journal, is used to illustrate the architectural design of a house for a family of three. The plan of the house was develop to satisfy the family's needs by considering the size of the lot, the size and shape of the different architectural spaces, their priorities, and their overall contiguity. The salient feature of this paper is to show how closely the final plan, shape, size, geometric design and location relate to our mental criteria and personal needs, from the identification of the needs to the final plan. This approach also permits one to treat all these needs and their relation to the environment in a coherent framework
