In recent decades, the environmental crisis in the world has been widely considered leading to the concern of human society. Due to the continuous reduction of non-renewable energy and the prevalance of sustainable energy resources (sun, land, wind and…); the architects having  serious foot prints in the environment, should think about innovative solutions to reduce the energy consumption in buildings. The soil architecture is the most original and the oldest tradition of Iranian architecture leading to sustainable and green architecture because of certain characteristics of soil such as the high thermal capacity and significant heat latency. This research, baced on visual observations, library studies and experimental models investigates the climatical specifications of Shahroud neighborhood and propeses the architectural design of  on- road recreational buildings, taking into consideration their energy consumption. The results indicate a meaningful energy saving induced by earth sheltered architecture model

Keywords: Earth sheltered architecture, warm and dry climate of Shahroud, building energy modeling, sustainable development, thermal behavior of the Earth.
