This paper shows the research results regarding the possibilities of bioclimatic and energy reconstruction of residential areas in the villages of Serbia. The principles of the traditional residential buildings built in the different regions (mountains, lowland, and hilly terrains) of Serbia have been investigated together with a work methodology related to the potentials of reorganizing the houses along with the reconstruction of residential and auxiliary facilities regarding energy efficiency and use of renewable energy sources. Based on a detailed study of the contemporary rural way of life, the subject of this paper is to explore the building methods of reconstruction for the existing houses, which includes a system of basic principles and spatial solutions based on specific typological ground features. This procedure involves a detailed analysis of the regional characteristics of each area in order to create an appropriate environmental context for the set of standard housing mod...el proposals. Climatic, geological, biological and aesthetic aspects of design, respecting the principles of traditional architecture, involve appropriate types of structural and foundation systems.
