Based on investigation on the residential buildings in Vietnam, we created typical tube house model for Vietnam. Effects of various passive methods, such as thermal insulation on the interior side of walls, exterior blinds, heat-reflecting glass, double roofs with air layers, etc. on the model house are examined with simulations. An energy house model is proposed combining all the effective passive methods mentioned above. From these results, we have prepared the sustainable design guidelines for the tube house in Vietnam.
