ABSTRACT

The aim of the article is to identify the potential impact of the latest commercial digital tools for building energy analysis on the everyday architectural practice in Poland in the context of typology and energy optimization of single-family houses. The reason for this survey is that the "architect friendly" interfaces, simulation results’ visualization and energy analysis tools are not given deserved attention in the architectural education in Poland thus some of the design opportunities for sustainability are lost. The possibilities and limitations of Insight 360 integrated with BIM technology and tailored to the needs of architects are discussed based on a conceptual house model of curvilinear geometry. Insight 360 enables architects to examine implications of early design decisions on the building energy usage and to identify areas for possible improvements. In the later stages of house design energy simulations serve to demonstrate design compliance with local building codes and ordinances, voluntary green building programs and/or customer requirements.

Keywords: design methodology, energy building simulations, sustainable architecture
