Made offers Remodeling and Renovation
Founding Year: 2019
Location: San Francisco, US
Partner for: Virtual Renovation
US-based startup Made provides bathroom renovation and remodeling services. It virtually connects users to a project consultant, who explains the process. The process starts with design discovery that offers designs and models with various colors and mood boards to choose from. It then offers 3D photorealistic renders to show the future bathroom structure, allowing for any further changes in plans. Once the plan is finalized, the startup works with certified contractors and manages everything from material procurement to the final construction.
Architude practices Green Architecture
Founding Year: 2018
Location: Hyderabad, India
Partner for: Building Information Modeling (BIM)
Architude is an Indian startup that offers digital designing solutions for green architectures. It takes into account the building as well as the environmental factors like local climate, topographic conditions, and vegetation to make a virtual model. The startup then replicates the simulated model on the ground. Architude’s sustainable design and building construction substantially benefit the environment as well as reduce the time, cost, and energy requirements of the project.
Archilyse offers 3D BIM
Founding Year: 2017
Location: Zurich, Switzerland
Partner for: Smart Construction Plans
Swiss startup Archilyse offers a cloud-based BIM solution. The startup’s platform, Archilyse.one, provides 3D simulations and easily understandable plans. It converts 2D floor plans in PDFs or building image file formats to 3D, georeferenced models. Its algorithms analyze these building models and translate them into easy-to-read heat maps, allowing architects to better understand building plans. The platform also generates data visualizations to offer insights about a property’s view, interior variations, infrastructure, as well as cognitive, noise, and light conditions in high detail.
Arkio provides a Collaborative Design App
Founding Year: 2017
Location: Reykjavík, Iceland
Partner for: Virtual Reality (VR)-based Design
Arkio is an Icelandic startup that develops collaborative design solutions. They enable users to sketch buildings, interiors, and urban plans in virtual reality on PCs, tablets, and phones in 3D. Additionally, the startup’s platform provides flexibility in designing as well as enables collaboration, allowing up to 24 users to collaborate and design the same model. Also, the users are able to use their hands to pick, lift, move and place things at a human scale, reducing the complexity in modifications of construction plans.
Eleven advances Architectural Visualisation
Founding Year: 2019
Location: London, UK
Partner for: 3D Product Rendering
British startup Eleven offers architectural visualizations that include 3D rendering and design. It provides building planning in innovative formats, like evocative images and animations, unlike conventional still images. For instance, Eleven’s Cinemagraphs are images in graphics interchange format (GIF) formats with atmospheric animation. The startup also offers immersive animations produced with a combination of camera footage using drones and computer-generated (CG) scenes or even a fully modeled 3D environment.
