The integrated design approach of an astronomical observatory is an approach in designing and evaluating the performance of an astronomical observatory. There are several factors that need to be considered in the concept of integrated design approach namely sustainability, functionality, productivity, accessibility, cost effectiveness, aestheticism and, security and safety. For this study Kolej Universiti Sultan Zainal Abidin Observatory was taken as studied observatory, so that the factors can be identified clearly. A questionnaire was distributed to users of the Kolej Universiti Sultan Zainal Abidin Observatory, Terengganu for obtaining opinions from the user perspective. The questionnaire was analyzed by using Statistical Package Program for Social Science 16.0 (SPSS16.0). The analysis was performed in order to determine the relationship between all variables. From the result, it has been found that the most critical success factors were sustainability, functionality, accessibility and productivity
