Since more and more development of concrete buildings in the urban, the landed property has become scarce and significantly reducing the quantity of green spaces. To overcome this issue, vertical greeneries in building could be introduced. Although the space is limited, transitional spaces could be optimised. Transitional space is a space that is not directly occupied and located in between the interior and exterior environment. This place acts as both buffer spaces and physical links and consumes more energy to maintain the thermal condition to be acceptable for the occupants. Hence, this paper reviews the potential of vertical greeneries for improving the thermal condition in transitional spaces.
