Several calls have been everywhere asking for proper use of passive design tools like shading devices, insulation, natural
ventilation and solar panels in building architecture of hot-dry area in order to improve the thermal performance
of indoor spaces. This paper examines the effect of these passive tools on indoor thermal performance which in turn
helps arrange thermal priorities properly. Herein, basic principles of Successive Integration Method (SIM) have been
utilized for an integrated design of two floors with small openings integrated with floor cooling, solar panels, natural
ventilation, shading devices, and insulation. As a result, create priorities of passive tools that are structured consequently
for ventilation, insulation, solar panels, and shading devices. This structure could guide designers and builders to set
their priorities for the new development of building construction.
