Abstract: Climate responsive building has become one of the most effective approach to achieve sustainability in buildings. With the modern various innovations and diversified sophisticated technologies available nowadays in the building sector, people are tending to adopt all of this latest cutting-edge technology available on the building construction market regardless of the requirements of their building’s project local climate. In this research study climate consultant software (an energy design tool) was utilized to give an appropriate understanding of Gisenyi climate and to eventually establish building design strategies matching with Gisenyi climate. The outcomes of this research work show that it is needless to adopt active or mechanical design strategies for Gisenyi climate as for this type of climate thermal comfort zone of the occupant can be best achieved through the implementation of only passive design strategies.
Keywords: Gisenyi Climate, Psychrometric Chart, Thermal Comfort Zone, Building Design Strategies, Climate Responsive Building, Climate Consultant Software.
