Hausify creates a contemporary architecture without architects, by democratizing architectural knowledge which has grown more esoteric.
Hausify is a procedural design tool, or precedent driven design (PDD) tool. This tool can generate a parti and style through the analysis of user submitted images.
PDD generates a design and applies finishes and furniture to the scheme. These elements come from a catalogue of materials curated by the Hausify team. From this catalogue, the Hausify team is able to develop a catalogue of generic details.
For construction, Hausify generates a 3D model with call outs at detail locations which refer to the detail handbook generated by PDD. PDD modifies the generic detail catalogue to fit the specific design.
PDD gives autonomy to the user, maintains quality and reduces the cost of a designed home. This is not the end of architects; it opens opportunities to work on other projects while providing high-quality design to those who cannot afford it.
