In this paper there is exploration of the possibility of creating effective sealed building envelope in zero energy building (ZEB) with unique façades. This article describes passive and active measures of decrease of thermal loss through enclosure structures, usage of modern insulation materials; positive effect of rationalization of the façade orientation and form of a building in a plan; on the base of existing architecture concept structural solutions of building envelope are suggested. Using thermal FEA the enclosure structure was optimized. The results of modeling of units and elements of building envelope are: heat transfer coefficient U-value for heterogeneous multilayer structure, picture of temperature distribution and magnitude of the thermal conductivity and temperature of internal wall surface.
