How Can 3-D Help You?

The practice of architecture has changed a lot over the years. Gone are the days of Mike Brady at his drafting table with a T-square and pencil. Instead, we use cutting edge technology for to save time and better communicate with our clients. For the past few years, we have been using 3-D modeling software as a design tool and the result has been phenomenal. The software has become so easy to use that even I can do it (although I usually leave that to my expert staff!) This allows for these renderings to be created quickly and cost effectively. Please see below some examples of this software at work.

We have used 3-D modeling software in a variety of ways, which helps us better communicate with the client what the finished product will look like. Whether the project is residential or commercial, new construction or a remodeling, almost all of our clients can benefit from this service. Below are some examples of how using color 3-D models helped the design process. Can you think of a way that seeing a 3-D model would benefit you?

Corporate Interior
For this project, the 3-D model helped the client see what their new interior build-out would look like. The rendering of the new reception area was particularly helpful in demonstrating the human scale.

New Residence - Color & Material Selection
For this project, once the layout of the house was determined, these 3-D renderings helped the owners select colors and materials for their new home.

Residential Addition
For this project, the 3-D model helped the client to see almost exactly what their new second story addition would look like.

Apartment Building Marketing Materials
OK, so this one is not in 3-D, but it was created using the same software. The apartment managers use these plans in brochures and on their website to display the various floor plan layouts they offer.
