MassBespoke is a digitally enabled construction system developed to address the demand for a fast, high-performance and commercially competitive integrated build system that can deliver cost certainty and bespoke design through a flexible, reliable, digital framework
Massbespoke has been designed from the ground up to leverage the potential of algorithmic design, rapid prototyping, digital fabrication and ubiquitous interconnected BIM design environments, in one single process.
The complexities of construction are built into MassBespoke making fabrication possible at local workshops anywhere in the world: Assembly is self-instructional (no drawings needed!) and requires only basic construction skills.
We aim to deliver the benefits of off-site construction without the restrictions: MassBespoke is a step towards creating a truly innovative construction process that can inteligently and rapidly evolve into an ecology of integrated building products & systems that simplify and enrich building construction.
MassBespoke is a construction system for building superstructure, generated automatically and fabricated digitally to any required shape or size in a workshop near you
MassBespoke is designed to achieve high standards of environmental performance, optimise use of materials, eliminate waste and remove the need for heavy transport and lifting at all stages of construction.
The cassettes incorporate a variable depth service zone. Building services can be coordinated in BIM so that cut-outs are be pre-formed.
We’re also working on printing schematics directly onto cassettes!
MassBespoke is a software driven physical product that integrates design, structure and fabrication into an automated system that can quickly process bespoke designs
Let the system do the work
Every project is different, but don’t reinvent the wheel on a project by project basis By systematising the whole process, it is viable to offer affordable customisation with world class engineering and detailing even on small projects.
Fabricate it locally
Any fabricator with a computer controlled router can fabricate MassBespoke with consistent millimetre precision. Meaning there’s flexible global manufacturing capacity already available.

Develop an Ecology
Other building components can be integrated with MassBespoke, allowing manufacturers to develop pre-coordinated details, streamlined logistics and innovate combined product solutions giving better choices to designers, that eliminating the need for repetitive design work.
There are several levels of service delivery that can be tailored to specific customer needs. We are working towards making the benefits of MassBespoke accessible to everyone in as many ways we can
From an outline building concept we generate a fully detailed BIM of every component ready for architectural co-ordination, a detailed report for building control approval, a full assembly schedule and cutting files for a local fabricator as well as all the parts and raw materials required to put it together.
On small projects we can provide an integrated service that can fabricate, deliver and assemble your building envelope.
In the longer term we are developing a digital platform that will host a multitude of intelligent, adaptable building systems that will help product manufacturers reach new markets directly with an online 3D configurator of compatible products connected straight to the manufacturing process.
