Dwelling design needs to consider multiple objectives and uncertainties to achieve effective and robust performance. A multi-objective robust optimisation method is outlined and then applied with the aim to optimise a one-story archetype in Delhi to achieve a healthy low-energy design. EnergyPlus is used to model a sample of selected design and uncertainty inputs. Sensitivity analysis identifies significant parameters and a meta-model is constructed to replicate input-output relationships. The meta-model is employed in a hybrid multi-objective optimisation algorithm that accounts for uncertainty. Results demonstrate the complexities of achieving a low energy consumption and healthy indoor environmental quality.
