This chapter illustrates the procedures for intelligent envelope design by analyzing two examples representing different initial scenarios, such as a new office building design and a residential energy retrofit. In this way, designers can study more clearly, through different situations, the steps essential for successful envelope design. The examples are developed through conceptual site analysis, showing the most suitable paths that follow appropriate energy strategies according to each case. In this way, it is possible to select sets of solutions for the envelope components according to design priorities.
