Ostate module  РUrban Massing Study

The Ostate mass study module generates all possible design variants at Gross Floor Area level and explores the shapes that could fit on the plot in relation to the context. This means that Ostate takes account of storey heights and the placement of certain functionality on a vertical and horizontal level, but does not yet determine the final floor plans within the building.

In this module, Ostate takes into account the urban development preconditions and the information from the first module and context data.

Ostate provides flexibility and efficiency in the design process

Within the set preconditions and urban development requirements of Module 1, Ostate generates every shape option of the plan. This can even amount to hundreds of variants. Ostate therefore uses a convenient online dashboard that can quickly display all these variants and in which you can easily select afterwards based on certain criteria. In no time you will receive feedback on all possible variants and you will see the measured and calculated information per variant.

You can always select the best variant yourself in our dashboard. Even if you change your mind or the preconditions change later in the process, you can fall back on this dashboard and select a new variant that does fit.

Combine the Mass study with urban planning Olysis analyzes.

Ostate module massing study uses the analyzes from Olysis (place link Olysis) at an urban planning level. This way, you can immediately see per variant what influence the design has on the environment.

Module 2 connects seamlessly with module 1 and subsequent modules

Ostate works in modules that together come to a design. Each module connects seamlessly with the next but is also available separately. In a short time Ostate generates the best design in 3D within the set requirements and preconditions of your project.
