During the Concept Design phase, we often build a 3D model to inform the process. It makes the design come to life in a way that 2D plans and elevations may not and when created we can use it to inform clients as well as the design process.
Once built, the 3D model facilitates easy sketch or semi-realistic views of the design for presentation purposes. We can apply colours and finishes to quickly communicate our design ideas and we can edit the model to show options for discussion.
Once the design has been further developed you may decide that you require a photorealistic depiction of the design. This type of visual gives you a fully accurate representation of the design and we have found can often be compared to installed photographs.
- Sketch Visuals give you a real sense of the interior space and colour schemes. We can quickly produce interior views of the space to help communicate the design. This type of visual will be created to support the concept phase and does not require the detailed design to be complete.
- Video walk throughs will allow you to travel through the proposed design. These are helpful in gaining an understanding of the space as a whole and are created easily using the model we have developed. The walk throughs can be either sketch or realistic, however we often find the sketch version sufficient to explain the design.
- Photorealistic Visuals give you a fully accurate view of the design proposal. Some of the Detail Design phase will need to have been completed for this type of visual to be created.
Photorealistic images often take quite a long time to produce and as such are a costly item, they do however help our clients to understand the detail of a scheme if they find it difficult to visualise.
