Abstract: Along with the living standard enhancement, the residential building's energy consumption of Lhasa had a large-scale expansion. Field surveys showed that the layout design can obviously affect indoor thermal environment. For a deeper understanding of the layout design's effect to heating energy consumption, the basic simulation models were established, analyzing items include south and north balcony space design and unit shape design. Results show that balcony reduces winter heating energy consumption significantly; small sunroom depth design is good for heating energy saving; north sealed balcony depth design has a balance point for the heating energy saving; unit layout's big depth design is better than big width design on heating energy saving. The layout design strategy should be used on local residential building design.
