Architecture is often more art than science for designers working with building and non-building structures. They are passionate about their design but pitching for a project can be a different game altogether, selling your designs to developers and client is equally important as the design itself. Many architects may face skeptical clients who are not keen to accept their ideas readily. To make such investors believe and trust in your idea a verbal communication is not very effective, other tools are required to make them visualize the idea. That is exactly when we turn to automated design and product techniques.
Visualize the Structure in real time environment
Investors may worry about the location of the site and how well the design is going to perform in the surroundings. We can combine architectural renderings and Google map to create a visual wherein we can see the structure in a realistic environment and landscape, that will not only help us to experience the design well in advance before actual construction but also we can figure out alteration and additions to the design.
Selection of material
While we are looking at visualization as marketing tool many might find it even helpful for addition & alterations to their design or look and feel. It might save us the hassle to convince the investor on the choice of material going well with each other while they have something else in mind. A quick comparison of renders with different material choices can make the selection a smooth process.
It’s not surprising architectural details are not given necessary attention in sketches but it is of extreme importance for any structure and also it must be reciprocated in the visualization. With change trend contemporary architecture is keen for detailing which can have variations and sketching or 2D render of all those options can be time consuming or difficult to explain. We don’t face such challenges with 3D visualization the turnaround time is quick and results are accurate, simultaneously building synergy between conceptual design and detail design.
We have often required reproducing the design in its environment or to show its accessibility from the nearest landmark, in rising competition location and landmarks are considered a USP. While we struggled to highlight this point in primitive methods, we can easily produce a 3D render showing aerial view or a panoramic view of the property with all landmarks and the environment with help of Google Maps.
Tool for Interior Designers
Designing an interior can be tricky as it involves numerous details and accessories, there can be many elements and materials involved furniture, fixtures, furnishing, and lighting. Again for each element there can be more than one option, making it difficult to make up your mind but with 3D rendering, you can easily visualize the final product, compare all elements and make further alterations.
Important for developers
You often meet developers, who value returns from the project more than design, convincing such clients need more effort to establish that the design would sell with their future buyers. In a scenario like this you can use 3D rendering as a handy marketing tool, representing your design in 3D to your prospective buyers will give you a chance to understand exactly are they looking while browsing for the property. You will come across people who partially like the design but need some tailoring in design to suit it among their buyers, these inputs can be incorporated prior to final construction making it suitable for buyers.
Representing your work
In any industry, you create a niche with your work, but in the creative field is more than essential to represent your work before it can become a bench marks especially when you have a completion. It can be challenging to make people believe in your design when you are just starting your career as a designer. Advertising your work to clients is not time consuming with 3D rendering available, putting your design rendered in 3D on your website, social media platforms will give people an insight into your promising designs and will attract prospective buyers.
