dc.description.abstractIn traditional tropical dwellings, there are several types of attached semi-open spaces, which were protected from rain and sun. They were used comfortably for many social activities. Baya??s studies (2000, 2004) show that in Bedok Court Condominium, similar veranda spaces encourage high level of social activities and sense of community due to its comfortable environment. A survey was conducted in Singapore to obtain the data of actual human responses to the environment in the semi-open spaces. The actual thermal comfort votes were compared to the predicted votes using a latest indoor predicting model, showing similarities and differences. The differences were due to the availability of higher wind and solar radiation in the semi-open space. Their impacts and relationships were studied in depth. Some suggestions are discussed for future research and for future designs of sustainable housing.
