In the past few years, the awareness on energy consumption and climate change has been increased. Researchers are dealing with ways of mitigating this phenomenon. An area of significant energy consumption is heating an air conditioning of buildings. Many actions of reducing the energy which is consumed by buildings, has being taken in the past years. This also has economic benefit as energy costs are significantly reduced.The present thesis deals with the field of bioclimatic design and spesifically with the energy design of a house in Kounoupidiana of Chania using Revit software.Initially some reference is made to the legislation and then design standards are listed ,such as the Passive House Standard .There is a historical overview and description of the operation of the software used and a reference to some basic principles of its operation .The concept of bioclimatic design is then analyzed and some strategies are described.In the main part of the work ,the first step was the climate analysis of the site of reconstruction This study was carried out progressively ,starting from the climate of Greece ,continuing in Crete and Chania .As far as the design of the house is concerned ,it was initially analyzed with the mass model method .Then the house was designed following the requirements ok KENAK and its energy analysis was made .Finally ,based on the results ,energy improvements were made ,and a comparison between the residence following the requirements of KENAK and the improved one was made.The purpose of this project is to design a house, which uses heating and air conditioning energy reduction strategies. An integrated approach is made using Revit BIM Design software. The ultimate goal is to approach the minimum possible energy consumption.
