As suggested by literature, architecture and music has similarities. This study is planned to discuss the importance of music in space planning. The study is conducted at an experimental setting with automatic control lighting system where light levels, temperature et cetera were kept constant.  In the study, intimacy-presence, liveness-reverbe, warmth, clarity, balance, uniformity is tested. The importance of music on people and its importance on space planning is investigated. SPSS 21.0 Statistical Analysis Program is used at data analysis. Pearson Ki-Square Test is used. Test results suggested that there is a relation between sound-space interaction and space perception. Music is also affective on intimacy, clarity, texture, brilliance, space integrity et cetera. There is no relation between the gender of the participants and space perception. It can also be argued that people can feel themselves in different moods at the same setting in regard to music. This mood setting shall be in integration with the function of the space.
