As a team of passionate problem-solvers, we are rethinking the approach to conceptual design.

Our tools will enable you to deliver fast, fluid, data-driven concepts to all project stakeholders, facilitate quick uptake and power up your design processes.

Our Team

Headquartered in New Zealand, Cerulean Labs was founded in 2020 with a vision to improve the built environment.

Initially focusing on the conceptual design stage, our first product Spaces gives architects the freedom to explore a range of design options quickly. Coupled with live building data, Spaces allows for improved and optimised design outcomes.

As a business we embrace remote working and we have team members in New Zealand, Australia, the United Kingdom, Germany and Hungary.
