Architect Life: A House Design Simulator invites the player to head an architectural firm that designs and builds dream homes for clients.

Who hasn't dreamed of creating the ideal home? Lovers of wide-open spaces, modern or traditional architecture: in Architect Life players design whatever they want, giving free reign to their creativity. Using an advanced, user-friendly construction tool, they create whatever house they can imagine in sandbox mode, or develop their architectural firm in career mode by bringing their clients' dreams to life. 

Make the most of your extensive creative freedom, with a huge variety of materials, structures and items, and above all innovative construction tools which will enable you to design and customise your buildings, from the shape of each room to detailed roof drawings.

Thanks to the many options and wide range of choices available to players, each project will be unique, whether it involves designing a house, interior decoration or exterior improvements. At each step, the player can set up a virtual visit to ensure that, once finished, the project corresponds to the specifications and the clients are satisfied… with new skills unlocked in the process.  

Create the ideal home! From 3D plan modelling through to on-site decision-making, you must bring each project to life while adding your own creative touches, to take your architectural firm to the pinnacle of the profession.

"Lots of people think about their dream home and decor, so seeing it come to life onscreen with Architect Life is highly gratifying. Benefiting from the studio's technical expertise, we have created a game that is both comprehensive and easy to access, so everyone's ideas can become reality. We hope that each player will appreciate and create their very own 'Home sweet home',” explained Sylvain Grosdemouge, CEO and founder of Shine Research.

Key Features:

  • Career mode – You take charge of an architectural firm, and are entrusted with managing its contemporary home design projects. Model each home according to the client's specifications and the terrain, select the subcontractors, and supervise the construction. All this will earn you experience points to gradually unlock new ways of executing these projects (new construction materials and techniques, green energies, etc.).
  • Free mode – You select the environment and terrain from 60 different options and then enjoy complete creative freedom!
  • Innovative and intuitive tools – Room and roof drawings, with precise dimension and angle measurements, creation of balconies and mezzanines, structure extensions, a wide selection of materials and coatings, etc. The simple, ergonomic tools provided by Architect Life are designed to maximise the creative possibilities available.
  • Equipment and fittings – Manage room heating by optimising the quantity and placement of heating devices, customise the interior of your homes down to the exact colour of the furniture, and enhance the outdoor space with vegetation and a variety of facilities (swimming pools, playgrounds, etc.)
  • Virtual visit – Switch to first-person mode to visit your homes once built. Change the position of the sun to test the rooms' performance in different lights, and relax as you admire your creations within their biome.

Architect Life: A House Design Simulator is coming to PC (Steam), PS5, Xbox Series X|S and Nintendo Switch in 2025.
