Building envelope of the structures plays a crucial role in the energy consumption. To decrease the amount of Energy Consumption in Building, Energy saving materials and Optimal sizing of Openings to be selected. In this aspect a model is simulated by using the Design Builder Software to Analyse the Spatial Daylight Autonomy, Thermal Comfort and Annual Energy Consumption. Windows impact the heat exchanges between indoor environment and outdoor environment. This possibly permit a proper utilization of solar energy. The research aims to investigate the influence of window-to-wall ratio in different of different climate conditions in India which has been introduced as hot dry, hot humid and moderate climates. The research has studied the most possible window-to-wall ration in the region based on previous work 5%, 10%,15% and 20% out of the faced surface area of the building. This paper sketch out the modus operandi and the alike results of an analysis which targets to find out the ideal size of the glazed surface, which permits the minimum amount of overall energy consumption and determining the efficient building materials .The analyses and simulation procedures were performed using Design Builder software and the window dimensions are calculated in terms of the ratio between the glazed surface to the gross facade area, defined as window to wall ratio (WWR).
