Generally, There is to install fire resist shutter or to compart between the office room and the atrium in the atrium buildings in Korea. But, Glass wall that is installed sprinkler which purpose to protect it from fire, is already installed between the office room and the atrium in the advanced nations. We study this problem as follow; We made the fire scenario, and analyze each scenario using FASTLite is fire modeling software and BREAK1 is to predict the window breakage time in the compartment fire. In this study, we can decide that fire compartmentalization between atrium and office rooms doesn't require in Atrium building if the material and fire protection system were reliable. Consequently, Korean Fire Protection Regulations have to consider in direction of increasing freedom of building.
