In this paper we present a domain model for the attribute-value-based representation of architectural building designs. The model is currently part of the retrieval system prototype MetisCBR, a multi-agent system for the distributed search of architectural designs in case bases that contain these designs. Using the idea of semantic fingerprint of architectural design, we transferred the fingerprint structure and the corresponding architectural specification of the graph markup language (GraphML) to a CBR domain model for implementation in distributed case-based retrieval projects. We extended the model by adding new attributes for more efficiency, and evaluated it using an exemplary user query and a special retrieval strategy to show its advanced development stage and suitability for such retrieval applications.
