1 Introduction</h5> Office buildings represent an important part of our living environment. With respect to energy consumption, occupant satisfaction and behavior are worthwhile issues in the context of the performance of sustainable office buildings [1–5] . Experiences show that there is often a large gap between the predicted energy demand based on simulation and the consumption during the day-to-day operation once the building is in use. Several studies [6,7] report that occupant behaviors significantly affect the energy demand of buildings (ranging from 1.2 to 2.84 times when comparing identical buildings). Within the complex bundle of aspects such as design, construction, operation, maintenance and occupants’ expectations, the occupant behavior might not fit with the energy concept and cause counterproductive behavior. The “Desire for Control”  over ambient environmental conditions such as temperature or indoor air quality however has a strong impact on the well-being of the employees  . The understanding of the relationship between building and user behavior therefore plays an important role in the consideration of the energy consumption. Thus, the focus of this work is to explore patterns of energy-related behavior such as window-opening at the workplace, which is the most favorite taken adaptive opportunity
