Meet Spacemaker: early-stage planning, reimagined
What is Spacemaker?
Spacemaker is a cloud-based AI software that empowers architects and urban planners to plan sites and develop early-stage designs faster, smarter and more collaboratively.
Deliver comprehensive feasibility studies with the confidence that you’ve explored the best options for every site. Discover a new tool that builds a compelling story for your concept.
- Create 3D massing models of your site and its surroundings using automatic datasets
- Test your site proposals and receive accurate analyses for 100+ criteria such as noise, wind, sun and microclimate
- Streamline your early-stage planning and design workflows with intuitive tools and generative design
Why use Spacemaker?
Make better design decisions: reflect and act on data-driven insights to deliver the best possible solution for your project
Accelerate your site: work effectively with Spacemaker's intuitive tools and automation, all accessible in one single piece of software.
Improve collaboration: collaborate in the same cloud-based 3D model any time, anywhere to drive your project forward together.
What you can do with Spacemaker
- Deliver comprehensive feasibility studies, faster: uncover greater insights into your site and its surroundings with built-in analysis tools, extensive environmental data and automatic area calculations to create compelling proposals.
- Discover, compare and optimise for better design outcomes: use generative design to quickly create and iterate different versions of your massing models. Explore the best options for every site to intelligently track density, living qualities and regulations.
- Make informed decisions collaboratively: using Spacemaker as a fact-based foundation helps your team clearly understand the performance of your design and streamline the decision-making process internally and externally.
- Ready to use datasets: Spacemaker sources site-specific datasets such as boundaries, terrain, buildings and infrastructure
- Noise analysis: address problems related to environmental noise and meet comfort and compliance goals
- Microclimate analysis: evaluate the thermal comfort (UTCI) of outdoor spaces quickly, easily and accurately
- Sun analysis: analyse sun hours on building facades and on the ground, taking into account surroundings and terrain.
- Smart design tools: draw fluidly in 2D and 3D with dynamic tools that tally floor area in real-time while you draw
- Wind analysis: assess your site for various effects caused by wind, providing insight into airflow patterns
- Daylight analysis: assess the daylight performance on your site, including obstruction angle and vertical sky component.
- Generative design: height studies- optimise the distribution of building heights within your set limits to improve density and living qualities
- Parking Design and analysis: Spacemaker automatically fills your defined parking area with parking spots and calculates your parking coverage
- Automatic area calculations: easily calculate the gross floor area, gross and net internal area, building coverage, façade area and outdoor.
