The aim of this paper is to evaluate and compare the architectural and environmental design strategies in terms of layout and orientation, internal space planning, building fabric and energy consumption plan of three carefully selected housing projects in the UK. These case studies are: Hockerton Housing Project (1998), BedZED (2002) and Kingspan Lighthouse (2007). The first two schemes are selected because both are designed with the aim to achieve zero space heating targets and the third one is selected as it has achieved level 6 of the latest Code for Sustainable Homes. Comparative analyses of actual or predicted measurements of energy consumption for the three case studies will be carried out, based on data collected from various sources. Best design strategies for achieving zero energy consumption for space heating are discussed as the result of this comparative analysis.
