Modelur empowers architects, designers and planners to make well-informed decisions during the early stages of urban design.



Modelur is an easy-to-use, yet very powerful parametric urban design software tool, developed to help you quickly create conceptual urban massing. It calculates key urban control parameters on the fly (e.g. FAR or required number of parking lots), delivering important information while design is still evolving. This way it fosters well-informed decision making during the earliest stages, when design decisions have the highest impact.

Introduction to Modelur (a SketchUp Extension for Urban Design)


Productivity 250px

Boost your productivty

Modelur was built with one goal in mind – to provide the designers with an easy to use parametric urban design tool everyone can use. This results in carefully selected set of functionalities that help you achieve more accurate results in less than 1/2 of time needed (...) when compared to traditional methods.

Design Alternatives 250px

Quickly assess design alternatives

Thanks to the increased productivity, you can quickly create, compare and evaluate different design alternatives and scenarios. Having both, quantitative and qualitative (visual 3D) data at your hands when making decisions, you can easily validate different design proposals against the requirements and make sure the best solution is chosen for further development.

Well Informed Decisions 250px

Make well-informed decisions

Modelur continuously calculates key development parameters while you design, empowering you to make well-informed decisions from the onset of your project. At the same time, it also automatically detects if the design is in conflict with zoning rules and constraints. Having all this information at hand helps you make sure the right decisions are made and increases the confidence in your project.

Focus On Design 250px

Focus on design, not numbers

Using Modelur you gain the freedom to focus on conceptual urban design and let the computer crunch the numbers for you, in real-time. Calculated urban parameters can be displayed on screen at all times, empowering you to easily pursue development goals. Each design change is reflected automatically and immediately in numbers.

Zoning Rules 250px

Work directly inside zoning rules

Modelur is the first application that incorporates an all-new design method, which creates an interactive solution space that adapts each building to already known zoning rules such as allowed building heights or land uses. This rewards you with instant feedback, making it super easy to see how zoning rules actually affect each building at specific location and making sure that each building complies with (municipality’s) zoning rules at the same time.
