In this paper, for a sustainable building in a Mediterranean climate areas, the relation between envelope and energy is discussed. The relation between envelopes and energy has been considered in all the phases of the life building (construction phase and during operation). This has been made through global assessment of massive envelopes (with or without insulation) realized with blocks of different materials: natural stone, concrete and brick. For these types of envelope the thermal comfort of the rooms, the energy requirement for cooling and heating, economic and environmental aspects (costs and embodied energy) in the life cycle of the building have been studied.
