Abstract

There is a great need to reduce energy consumption in high-rise office buildings due to the escalating environmental problems such as Urban Heat Island effect. Sky courts provides a natural way of cooling, allowing natural ventilation and inviting natural lighting without relying on the use of air-conditioning to achieve thermal comfort. Introducing greenery in high-rise buildings help to improve the thermal comfort where the microclimate is highly influenced by solar radiation. Terdapat keperluan yang tinggi untuk mengurangkan penggunaan tenaga di bangunan pejabat bertingkat tinggi disebabkan oleh masalah alam sekitar yang semakin meningkat seperti kesan Pulau Haba Bandar. Sky Court merupakan pendekatan semula jadi untuk mengurangkan suhu dalam bangunan dengan menggalakkan pengudaraan semula jadi dan kemasukan cahaya semula jadi tanpa bergantung kepada penggunaan penghawa dingin untuk mencapai keselesaan terma.
