Abstract: In this communication, four designs of sunspaces are conceived for a one room residential apartment. Analytical expressions have been derived using energy balances of the different components of the structure and a comparative analysis in terms of sunspace and living room temperatures have been presented. For the same glass area exposed to sun-rays, a comparative numerical evaluation of the four solarium-cum-solar houses is also presented. It is concluded that (a) the south inclined glass solarium at the optimum angle gives better thermal comfort as compared to others for the same area of glass exposed to solar radiation and (b) the living room temperature fluctuation increases with an increase in glass area and better load levelling is achieved by incorporating a larger thermal mass inside the living room.
