A large number of energy crisis phenomena which directly related with the rising of global temperature had become a considerate issue to many people recently. But solving this issue is not an easy task especially for common people due to many factors that is related one another with different kind of subjects. Building facade design also affects the amount of energy used both for general lighting and also the heat amount that enter through the facade itself. Based on several surveys on the used of energy, office building considered to be a large energy consumption building. Air conditioning system is the biggest consumption of energy in an office. This is an interesting issue to be researched due to the positive benefit of energy saving by reducing Air Conditioning energy consumption in offices. One big opportunity to reduce the use of Air Conditioning energy is by designing the perfect building facade considering the use of the materials, percentage of the openings compare to the massive area and the orientation of the building.
