The aim of this paper is to develop a new concept of sketch tools for the very steps of the design process. The originality lies in the use of optimization to define a global design of the building, the energy system and the control strategy. Therefore, an adapted model of the building has been realized, not directly using fine dynamic models (like those that can be found in tools TRNSYS, DOE2.2 and EnergyPlus...), but more coarse equations adapted to the sketch design phase. Those models are based on static and macroscopic equations investigating energetic and financial balances.
