Most residential projects follow a similar design workflow, where the designer completes a site assessment that considers a number of building or council requirements. This is often a long and repetitive process.
The designer has to create layout after layout, iterating until they find a unit mix and floor layout that’s not only desirable but also meets all the necessary requirements.
unitize is a Revit plug-in that speeds up the process of assessing residential building layouts. It eliminates this cyclical process by accelerating the assessment and reassessment of the designer’s masses.
It works by creating unit or flat mixes for a Revit mass from a set of parameters predefined by the user. Units can be stacked or randomised to create multiple layout options that designers can print off, assess and sketch over.
unitize integrates with Revit for a seamless design workflow so there’s no time wasted switching between design programmes.
The width and depth of units is customizable to match your project requirements allowing for extra flexibility.
Users can make quick adjustments to residential masses and receive instant feedback on changes to unit count and density.
unitize's generic model families can be easily replaced with custom elements showing your typical layouts for quick plan studies.
"This plug-in allows us to carry out more iterations - we can assess things faster. It's the turnaround in decision-making that has been improved.
We don't see it as a design tool; it's all about analysis, breaking down areas to see what we could feasibly be achieved."
"I found this to have a really good user interface, it made sense to me really quickly. One great thing the tool allows us to do is revisit our designs once things change.
My verdict is: the tool is awesome! It’s really impressive, especially for a Revit based add-in."
