A novel approach to generate house floor plans with semantic informationis presented. The basis of this model is the squarified treemaps algorithm. Previously, this algorithm has been used to create graphical representations basedon hierarchical information, such as, directory structures and organization structures. Adapted to floor plans generation, this model allows the creation of internalhouse structures with information about their features and functionalities. Themain contributions are related to the robustness, flexibility, and simplicity of theproposed approach to create floor plans in real-time. Results show that differentand realistic floor plans can be created by adjusting a few parameters.
