In this study, the design conditions for the Korean-style glass greenhouse structure has been reduced to achieve the most efficient use of natural light. The AGI program was simulated for the optimal conditions of daylight in a glass greenhouse. From the results of daylight simulation, the axis position of the glass greenhouse's roof was not an important factor in the daylight effects regarding illumination and uniformity. In summer, there were long periods of daylight and high illumination levels. The illumination value of daylighting increased with increasing glass transparency value, and the illumination value was greatest at 14:00 hours. At this time, the rate of light variation according to the glass transparency was 89 [lux/%]. In addition, the optimal design conditions for the glass greenhouse were established, which were a $30[^{\circ}]$ or $150[^{\circ}]$ installation angle and higher transmittance of glass.
