|Abstract: ||Vegetation and Built environments usually have a relationship in terms of air temperature mitigation, However, courtyard buildings, as a microclimate modifier is rarely assessed. The study examines the courtyard air temperature difference of the atmospheric condition in Chinese shop-house in Malacca, Malaysia. Advocacy, utilizing field measurement and centring on the difference in air temperature of the courtyard with 69% vegetation and courtyard with 18% vegetation under the same state of courtyard Area and height. The Microsoft Excel was used as the Statistical tool throughout the Analysis. The outcomes demonstrate that there exists a difference of 3-degree centigrade in the courtyard with 69% vegetation and courtyard with 18% vegetation. The results demonstrate that vegetation regulates the air temperature within the courtyards.|
