This study is concerned with the use of passive solar applications in multistorey residential buildings in Algeria. The most important consideration of this research is the creation of comfortable conditions throughout the year with less energy consumption. Thus, the aim is to make our buildings economical and efficient by using natural systems. This can only be completed with a detailed consideration of microclimate. Hence, the key to the effective design of natural (passive) systems is microclimate design. Climate is therefore one of the major parameters to be considered in this study. This research is divided into two major analyses. The first analysis deals with a theoretical investigation of passive solar principles and its strategies in architecture and to what extent they could be applied successfully in multistorey residential buildings. The second major part is the application of passive systems to multistorey residential buildings in Algiers. The analysis is approached from architectural and thermal viewpoints. A common building already existing in Algiers, capital of Algeria, and in many other cities in the country is taken as a reference in this investigation to provide the basis for comparison with proposed design changes. It is shown by computer analysis that these changes lead to significant improvements in the thermal performance of the multistorey apartments.
