Building Envelope

Windows
The window to wall ratio (WWR) is 30%. According to the Energy Efficient Building Code – Building Envelope Guideline (EEBC), WWR must be between 30%-50% (EEBC 2013).
All windows are double-glazed. In addition, a reflective film was installed on the outside of west façade, which helps reducing the cooling load for AC systems.

Walls
Color
Light – yellow painted walls allows a high solar reflection capacity. It helps to reduce the thermal inertia of the building.

Roof
Shading
The louver system is made of aluminum plate thickness of 5 cm which to prevent solar radiation from entering the building directly.
