The study of application of biomimicry on building envelope and its response to any building design challenge is the main structure of the research. It examines nature as one of the basis for resolving these challenges. It continues to discuss the application of possible strategies for establishment of an architectural configuration compatible to its structure. The incorporation of biomimicry idea in architectural design is believed to be more sustainable and efficient for reduction of energy usage and operating cost consumption along with design renewal in the future. The idea of inspiration from nature has developed the intention on this research to explore how the concept could be applied to overcome the challenges through design strategies. The paper concludes with the formulation of a design guideline with evident biomimetic principles that could be applied to any building design with reference to different contexts to achieve energy efficiency in building design.
