In the era of digital transformation, the application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) has expanded across diverse industries. As a leading software agency, we had the unique opportunity to leverage this potential within architectural design. Our task was to develop an innovative AI solution that could autonomously generate floor plans, enhancing both efficiency and personalization within the architectural planning process.


The Challenge: Innovative Floor Plan Design through AI

The goal was to design an AI system that could create comprehensive, versatile floor plans by considering various parameters such as the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, amenities, land dimensions, room sizes, and compliance with local regulations and laws governing architectural designs. This task demanded an AI model that could assimilate a deep understanding of architectural principles, respect a myriad of input constraints, and deliver feasible, aesthetically pleasing, and practical floor plan designs.

The Solution: Harnessing Graph Convolution Networks and Generative AI

To address this challenge, we harnessed a fusion of advanced AI technologies, including Graph Convolution Networks (GCNs) and Generative AI. These state-of-the-art technologies formed the bedrock of our AI-generated floor plan system.

GCNs were utilized to interpret the complex relationships and constraints that are inherent in architectural design. This included factors like room sizes, structural requirements, and spatial relationships between different rooms. With these factors embedded within the network, the AI system ensured that every generated floor plan adhered to established architectural norms and principles.

Complementing the GCNs, Generative AI was integrated into the system to diversify the floor plan designs. This model used the foundational architectural principles derived from the GCN to generate a broad spectrum of floor plan designs. The hybrid approach outperformed the standalone Generative Adversarial Networks (GAN) model we initially tested, resulting in a more sophisticated solution.

User Interface: Interactive and Intuitive Design

To ensure an optimal user experience, we went beyond the backend and also developed an interactive user interface. This interface serves as the platform through which users interact with the AI to generate and modify floor plans. We designed the UI to be intuitive and easy to navigate, allowing users to input their preferences and see their ideas come to life.

Personalisation: The Power of Post-Processing Engine

To cater to the individual needs of architectural design, we incorporated a post-processing engine into our AI-generated floor plan solution. This feature allowed users to modify and adjust the AI-generated floor plans through the interactive UI. From changing room layouts to adding custom rooms, the AI model could swiftly regenerate the floor plan based on updated specifications. This high degree of customisation ensured the final design would always align with the user's vision, while still adhering to all essential architectural principles and constraints.

The Outcome: Streamlined Architectural Design

By integrating AI into architectural design, our solution has brought about a transformative change to the industry. It has substantially streamlined the process of generating floor plans, freeing architects to focus on higher-level design aspects. The unique blend of automation, regulation compliance, and personal customization brought by our solution adds a distinctive value to the entire design process.

This AI-generated floor plan system has not only saved considerable time and effort but also received positive feedback for its interactive UI, user-friendly interface, and customizable features. This case study attests to our commitment to driving innovation and practicality through AI and solidifies our position as a leading software agency. We continue to push the envelope, developing solutions that meet and surpass our clients' needs and expectations.
