Abstract

This study aims to provide architects with useful information by comparing several alternatives, including double skin system etc., to save the energy as well as increase the quality of indoor environment without interfering with the expressed intention which an architect shows to the public by applying glass to the outer skin of a building. For this study, the questionnaires and measurements were conducted and carefully analyzed by Paired-Samples T-Test, ANOVA and Duncan-Test, and Chi-Squared Test using SPSS, Energy-Shading-Glare Simulations using VE (virtual environment; APACHE-SUNCAST-RADIANCE). The results of this study were applied to an existing commercial building's remodeling.
