Abstract: Windows play an important role in every building. From the size of the windows to the material used for the windows and then, to the placement of the windows, it has to be designed with care. Windows may affect the thermal and visual comfort of the occupants in the office buildings. The study focuses on the thermal and visual comfort of occupants in the office buildings. The occupants are divided into two groups – occupants sitting near the windows and occupants sitting away from the windows. Questionnaire will be conducted in the offices to evaluate the perception, importance and satisfaction of occupants on the thermal and visual aspects in their workspace. Overall, there were limited significances in the tests conducted on the questionnaire results to show a difference in the responses between the occupants sitting near the windows and away from the windows. Hence, recommendations to include using mock rooms to conduct a controlled experiment can be considered in future studies. A clear definition of the distance of the occupants who are sitting away from the window can be made such that there are lesser overlapping of responses with regards to the thermal and visual aspects.
