One is always told that phi (the 'golden mean') provides the most esthetic proportion. Thus the height of the room would be 1/phi, the breadth 1 and the length phi. The resulting solid diagonal is 2 and the volume is 4phi. Phi is calculated as (sqr(5) + 1)/2. The numeric properties of phi are numerous:-
phi^2 (phi squared) = phi + 1
1/phi = phi - 1
A web search for 'golden mean' or 'divine proportion' will reveal a wealth of info.
