In certain decade, the shape of the building envelope looks similar to one another, in this case building with a glass veil in big cities for example those in Jakarta and in other tropical or four-season cities. Even though, a building was designed and built to accommodate human activities in that the space is comfortable to its maximum use. On the building orientation and protection against the sun, the following basic rules are applied: a. Open facade facing south or north to obviate direct sun radiation which will generate heat; b. In wet tropical climate protective for all building openings are required against direct and indirect sunlight, even the entire areas of the building. Besides that, it‘s necessary to use the study of sunlight angle by then the light protector and the building orientation can be correctly determined. To obtain an effective protective sunlight, every building facade should be separately reviewed. The same shape of sun-shade in all four building façade are irrational. The fall angle of sunlight can be determined by using graphics and the sun path diagrams (Lippsmeier).The architecture of the building must be empathetic, responsive, and resolvable. One of which is by integrating the energy efficient with that of environmentally friendly building. The use of natural lighting and ventilation in a residential building is one way of accommodating energy efficient, where the natural light is used as much as possible so as not to use artificial lighting during the day. This paper discusses building C, Campus A, Trisakti University as its focus of interest, with the purpose is planning the shade to protect the building from direct sunlight and heat radiation without obstructing the view. To protect openings from sunlight blocking so that it cannot directly get into the building, then the problem arises: what are the elements of the right sun-shades? Based on the research problem, descriptive method is used by tabulating data obtained from the plan, section, and detail measurement. Based on the data tabulation, the results then will be compared with the applicable standard value.
