A systematic approach to the restoration of an architectural structure is considered to be of crucial importance for its preservation. The objective of the research is to identify adequate methodologies for structural restoration in terms of energy efficiency, in accordance with modern requirements. The main method of this study is the observation of an architectural structure during its restoration and exploitation, and analysis and evaluation criteria for the findings regarding energy efficiency increase and energy saving. The subject of the research is a 1930s family villa in Belgrade, the analysis of the results achieved during the restoration of the villa in terms of energy efficiency and meeting modern living and comfort requirements. The study findings are recommendations for increasing energy efficiency during the restoration of a family villa in accordance with all modern living requirements. The key strategies to energy efficient refurbishment of the existing buildi...ng are understanding and defining the already existing energy efficiency aspects of previous construction styles, in order to keep applying them efficiently, along with the latest construction methods. The study findings present the recommendations for increasing energy efficiency during restoration of the existing structures, while at the same time preserving the authenticity of those structures. The main contribution of the study is a practical evaluation of energy refurbishment of the restored structure, which is realized through various principles and measures of energy efficiency along with the use of renewable energy sources, in accordance with the conservation requirements and protection and preservance of authentic appearance of the building itself.
