This paper attempts to outline the current state-of-the-art in the Czech Republic regarding the use of integrated building performance simulation as a design tool. Integrated modeling and simulation of buildings is illustrated by means of two recent studies for conversion of historical buildings (a water mill and a former church; both dated back to the 14th century) into a museum and a concert hall respectively. The paper elaborates the modeling and simulation work that was carried out to support the design teams of the two projects. This includes a discussion on how the simulation results were transformed in relevant design information. The paper finishes by indicating directions for future work that is needed to be better equipped in order to address design problems in the field of construction or restoration of buildings and their heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems.
