The Vernacular Architecture in India means variety of aspects of climate, materials, local craftsmen and utmost comfort. In true sense these designs are energy efficient. But in Modern Architecture majority of time buildings are designed based on passive, mechanical systems to consume more energy. But in comparative analysis they prove how they are energy efficient. But if these buildings are designed by understanding proper sun-path, climate and wind directions; these buildings can be more energy efficient than the former one. This paper is showcasing the different possibilities for building zonings, orientations, and fragmentation of the building foot-print to get more responsive design with respect to climate, sun-path and wind flows along with proper landscape to divert wind flows. If at schematic levels buildings are designed with these strategies energy consumption after building completion is reduced.
