This paper explores the main requirements and design guidelines of user interfaces for monitoring systems in office
buildings. We first discuss five information streams in the monitoring system (energy use, indoor environment, external
environment, occupants´ states, and environmental control systems states). We then present the results of a user survey
(134 participants) and three focus group sessions (24 participants) conducted in Vienna and Taiwan. The objective of this
survey was to capture the views of the potential receivers of building monitoring information regarding the relative
importance of different kinds of information and the modes and means of presenting and visualizing such information.
The outcome of these studies is expected to advance the state of art in connecting occupants and buildings.
