A window plays a role in connecting the outer and inner space that supports the connection between humans and the natural elements in the building. The presence and absence of windows, the type of view from the windows and the application of window's technology become the main issue right now in designing an inpatient ward, but it becomes irrelevant if it does not link to the experience of seeing patients. This study reveals the degree of relation of the configuration of the windows placement, seeing's capacity of patients and the arrangement of space. Exploration of the relation is done through five alternative configurations, to provide different patterns that produce a degree of relationship. Relation levels are presented through calculation of image region analyser MATLAB. The results of this study provide several alternative patterns of configuration with different levels of relationships that can be used as a basis for consideration in designing space in the hospital.
