Knowledge of location specific climate parameters plays an important role in the design conceptualisation phase if a balance between visual comfort, thermal comfort and energy performance is to be achieved. In this study, the climate diversity of Kerala (India) was assessed using synoptic meteorological tools and three locations with significant population centres and different prevailing climate were identified. A case study building, based on the design proposed in a Government project that aims to built 759,523 houses across Kerala, was simulated under different conditions to understand the sensitivity of daylight and thermal performance to the climate in Kerala.
