It can be said that the main task of architects is to create an atmosphere suitable for performing a certain function of humans. Today, although indoor and outdoor spaces are shaped with equal responsibility and seriousness, the environment in which people spend most of their time is the interior. A building as a closed area provides protection from external climate and weather changes and must provide the necessary conditions for working and living regardless of outdoor weather and climatic conditions, sounds, and noises. Spaces made up of windowed exterior walls are a vital shell in which many useful human activities take place. The evolution of the window is as old as the architecture itself. Mankind has been working to improve windows and doors since the beginning of architecture. One of the features of this evolution of the window is due to the relationship of the surface of the window hole to the outer walls. The advancement of technology has had an impact on the techniques and capacity of construction. This development also had an impact on the enlargement of window sizes. From this, we can conclude that windows and window openings are and still are an important means of expression in architecture. In addition to creating a visual contact with nature, the windows provide daylight and air to the rooms and underline the structure's role as a human living space that is not found in any other element of the building (Dunovski. V. and Balkoski, D. 2016; Sanda, A. et al. 2019).
