Abstract

1 Introduction</h5> Window provides the occupants with a connection to the outside environment. The open view through windows is considered as a highly desirable feature for office building especially in high-rise cities. Glazing area is a key factor being noticed in building energy consumption.</P>As the most common fenestration style, window plays a very important part in providing thermal comfort and optimum illumination levels in building, and also a very popular architectural form. Due to its relatively high U -value than wall area, the thermal performance of glazing material is a top concern within professionals.</P>As early as 2000, Nielsen et al. presented a work of an easy method for determining the net energy gain through window area. The method took into consideration of orientation, shading and glazing material [1] . Menzies and Wherrett conducted several survey studies to look into the sustainability and comfort issues of multi-glazed window. They claimed that during design of window area, the architects considered more about comfort. When it comes to sustainability, they did not consider much [2] . Aydin performed a numerical analysis on the heat transfer process in double pane windows using a finite difference technique. He discovered that for heat transfer
