The four other finalists were Commuty – Baloise (solution of parking optimization); Progetis – Félix Giorgetti (solution managing the sales and promotion processes of residential real estate projects); Spacetime – Soludec (project Manhattan – central square de Belval); and Unlatch – IKO. Next places (housing project Rout Lëns, Esch/Alzette).

3D personalization solution
“Visuary is a housing personalization solution, which helps developers sell their homes, through a 3-dimensional visualization of housing,” explains Thibaut Suchet, Sales Manager of the Parisian startup of 15 people.
The developer communicates the existing data and documents of the dwelling to Visuary, which converts them into a 3D plan. The developer and the purchaser can then view the result via a Web-app interface.
“Our technology makes it possible to redraw architects’ plans and instantly generate 3D, in order to show a prospect his home in 3D, but also to immerse him/her in this home while offering different variants of plans, furniture, layout and interior infrastructure. “
The collaboration with LBH immobilier started during RE-Smart 2022. Since then, the real estate developer and the startup have worked together on several residential projects, including the 12-unit housing project in Luxembourg, which won the award.
LuxProptech the organizer of the Real Estate New Technologies Fair, is the Luxembourgish community of innovators in the real estate value chain. Its mission is to foster innovations in construction and real estate and to ease the digital transformation of the industry.
