Abstract: The study’s aim is to study the effect of slight orientation deviations from the South in cold-dry climate of Tabriz. Choosing Tabriz as the case of study create a better comparison possibility and more tangible results. A hypothetical residential block based on contextual studies being modeled and simulated by the climatic, BIM based software of ECOTECTTM and analysed for examining, the effect of optimum orientation of residential building blocks on annual energy gains, losses and consumption versus prevalent common orientation regulations. Results show that although the annual temperature distribution or interior felt temperatures through a year are approximately the same but monthly degree days and passive gains breakdown figures indicate more energy loads and more energy consumption need to provide the human thermal comfort conditions inside the determined zones.
