Abstract: In this study, in terms of urban design, an exergy analysis of Mavişehir mass housing area in Izmir, Turkey is carried out based on spatial properties, shadow effects, wind effects and local climate to understand the importance of design strategies. The exergy analysis is applied with broad consideration covering the heat loads of the separate buildings for winter and summer. When the exergy results of Mavişehir I and Mavişehir II are compared it is found that Mavişehir II has less exergy by fuel and exergy load values. This may result from different design strategies in Mavişehir I where the same buildings and villas between residential buildings are located according to sea view, whereas in Mavişehir II, there is a heterogeneous pattern with various forms and heights of the residential buildings. It was also discovered that exergy efficiency of the area is 4.20% and the exergy flexibility factor is 19.3%.
