Multi residential building are created by the demand for the small and limited area in the capital and major cities of which the higher electricity consumption is found. This research investigated the apartment at PD A Lord Residence Ladprao 130. Using the computational and experimental research, this study aims to simulate the appropriate model in order to save energy by preliminary design and architectural forms, design alternatives, room layout, and openings design and shading devices. The findings revealed that the design of a good building envelope system can significantly reduce energy use. The related factors included material selection, determining the style and size of openings and solid walls or Window to wall ratio and also shading devices design.
