This research analysed the effect of the ecological material yellow soil (hwang-toh) on indoor environments. To accomplish this, two full-scale mock-ups were constructed: one with PVC-foamed wallpaper, which is generally used for indoor finishing, and the other with hwang-toh, which is an ecological material for wall finishing. Comparison and performance evaluations were conducted, and the effects of hwang-toh finishing on an indoor environment were verified. Through this research, it was confirmed that a hwang-toh plaster finish is effective in maintaining the comfort humidity of an indoor environment.
