Greenhouse modelling

Hello everybody,

I need to do an energy analysis for the rooftop of a tower, in this rooftop, the idea is to design a greenhouse. This greenhouse is made out of glass and some of the panels are windows to allow natural ventilation. My questions are:

-In order to model this building in HB shall i consider a general box and then apply apertures for the most part of it? there where is glass. Or shall i consider only the windows as apertures and then apply a glass material for the rest of the box (the fixed glass walls)?

-When I design the apertures, how can I indicate that these apertures are actually windows that at some moment are going to be open?

Thanks for your time.
