Integrated building design concerns the whole building systems approach. This approach is based on a design support for the building life cycle, in which multiple disciplines and apparently unrelated aspects of design are integrated in a way to allow synergistic benefits to be realized successfully. In order to cope with factors related to tightening environmental requirements, reducing development cycle times and growing complexity, this paper aims to describe a comprehensive design framework vision for integrated building design. A more focused use of applying systems engineering approach to the building design support is presented in response to the ever-increasing complexity of buildings. In particular, this paper addresses all issues of interrelated dynamic optimisation, as local optimisations do not give a global optimisation. The paradigm used, here is to extend and particularly to adapt the work carried out in military and space systems to modern building services by taking into account the semantics of buildings in terms of different engineering fields and architecture issues.
