As building envelope design influences the appearance of a building, various alternatives are suggested during the early stages of designing the building. Windows greatly affect the energy performance of the building and also the comfort of the occupants. Therefore, in an attempt toward making the window design information readily available, many countries have developed and distributed guidelines with formats varying in terms of their contents and purposes. The aim of this study is to present the development process of a window design guideline and the tools for various climatic conditions. Based on preceding research, the guideline prepared in this work has three parts: a downloadable document file, a webpage and a stand-alone program. This guideline can be used as a decision support tool by architecture professionals in the early stages of window design. We intend to present this guideline to government institutions to help shape policies on building design.
