By encoding design thinking and tacit qualitative knowledge into simulations, SUPERSPACE fosters design curiosity and increases planning rigour across projects. This approach promotes efficiencies and accelerates option exploration while guaranteeing conceptual depth and compliance.

Our spatial systems integrate big data feeds and planning simulations. Bespoke design simulations are developed for urban, architectural and interior design to increase the efficiency and depth of the workflow. Systems enforce rigour and transparency in decision making while allowing stakeholders to participate directly in the design process through effective communication.

Design Simulation weaves data analysis with design procedures, conceptual drivers and compliances to build interactive visual interfaces that can be serviced through the cloud or as stand-alone software. Simulations can be linked to databases to read and write client data in real-time or statically.

Designing simulations includes conducting background research, ideating concepts, developing strategies and translation into an integrated design process to deliver complex spatial designs through rigorous curiosity. Using a symbiosis between models of data mining, machine learning and artificial life with analogue best practice design experiences, allows SUPERSPACE to provide state-of-the-art services for the design of human-centric environments.

Design Systems

SUPERSPACE develops bespoke Design Systems for two purposes: for complex design solutions and for uncompromising design through data-driven algorithmic systems. Our commercial clients often face complicated tasks such as elaborate combinatorial problems. Those situations commonly require a long time or many resources to arrive at intuitive and often sub-optimal solutions. Simulated Design Systems will search for trade-offs between multiple parameters fast and analytically to arrive at optimal solutions. This saves time and mitigates the risk of omitting optimal solutions.

Data-driven algorithmic design systems provide design opportunities and innovative solutions that are either unfeasible or impossible to produce by people. We invent design typologies for clients that are inherent to scientific and computational models in order to produce fresh products and thinking.

Building Optimization/ Generative Design

Buildings must suit their occupants: we generate spatial layouts to fit the people and organisations who will use them, and allow for flexibility in future use scenarios.  Complex building organizations can be driven by circulation patterns, occupants’ relations or contextual drivers as well as traditional area fitting and environmental constraints. SUPERSPACE has been developing generative design software for stack & block, layout and massing for 15 years to educate the market about the benefits of automatic building organizations: speed of design validation, breadth of search space, high synergy between maximising area budgets and utilization requirements as well as depth of conceptual exploration.

We conduct client workshops to specify the requirements for building, end-user and contextual value and agree on the value proposition that drives clients’ branding to develop custom simulations for building organizations and massing. A series of ready-to-use building layout, stack & block and massing simulations are also available for the automatic generation of solutions for standard building typologies. Our software allows designers and stakeholders to interact with the simulations to guide the process beyond the encoded drivers and constraints.

Utilization & Operation Simulation

Built on a combination of our User-Centric and Spatial Analysis, SUPERSPACE develops building and sector specific utilization and operation simulations to assess existing performances and predict the impact of design options on occupancy. Utilization and operation data is received from our clients or collected by ourselves, followed by an initial data analysis phase to establish pattern of use or operational sequences. Simulations are built to reveal specific patterns that within existing built environments or future spaces. We developed design and utilization recommendations to guide clients to operate buildings efficiently and assist designers to configure spaces appropriately for the end-users occupancy requirements.
