ABSTRACT
The paper is highlighting the technical criteria used for choosing the optimal type of
exterior wall construction to be applied in the field of passive houses. In this respect, the state-of-the art has been studied and 5 types of exterior wall structures were chosen for further analysis. The specific characteristics, as well as the decision criteria have been established for the selected types of exterior walls. In order to choose the most appropriate solution, two methods using multi-criteria analysis in rationalising the decisions have been applied for finding the best version, compatible with the specific requirements of the approached domain. In the end, the acquired results have been compared and conclusions have been formulated.
