The aim of this study was to determine the role of the formation process in the architecture of residential buildings to improve their energy efficiency. The analysis of various types of national dwellings has been carried out, in which the criterion for evaluating the architectural form of the building was the volume compactness index associated with its form. The ratio of the area of the outer building structure to the heated volume is accepted for the index of compactness. The dwellings of the peoples in the North Russia and Siberia, Armenia, South India and Central Asia have been studied. It is shown that the morphogenesis of residential buildings could be the determining factor for a low consumption of thermal energy used for heating of buildings. The author concluded that, in addition to the use of advanced modern energy-saving technologies, the work with the architectural form is also important for energy consumption savings.
