Applying Generative Design (GD) for dwelling is not very common but it opens up the possibility to study whether GD systems can reproduce existing design typologies. Dutch dwellings as an exemplification of a design typology are analysed using the SAR methodology. Building regulations are used as input to a GD system along with the typical requirements for a family house. The results show that not all existing typologies can exactly be reproduced, but the generated designs have a remarkable resemblance with Dutch dwellings. They also demonstrate that Dutch dwelling identity is at least partially encoded in Dutch building regulations. Coding of yet unknown architectural identities requires new GD metaphors to support the architect.
