Unleashing the diversity of conceptual building renovation design: Integrating high-fidelity simulation with rapid constraint-based scenario generation

Designing a renovation plan for a building is a highly complex task: during this planning process, the design team needs to explore an enormous “design space” of possible renovation actions, and on the other hand, must evaluate the efficacy of each candidate design using computationally expensive simulations. Moreover, the design team seeks to balance a range of competing key performance indicators (KPI) as demanded by clients and the real conditions of the existing buildings, which are unique for every project (e.g. energy consumption, daylight, and thermal comfort).
We present an innovative renovation decision support framework that provides the design team with broad coverage of the design space in conjunction with limited, careful use of precise simulations for KPI evaluation. Our approach integrates logic-based domain model querying and multi-objective optimization based on Answer Set Programming and the KPI simulation system. We empirically evaluate our system in a large residential building case study in Denmark.
