As an essential 3D visualization service for architects and other professionals to show clients what the result will look like before construction begin, 3D renders are an indispensable part of successful communication and cost-effective business strategy. With the revolution of technology, 3D rendering has evolved to the most advanced hyper-realistic rendering stage so people can see their living apartment or commercial property exactly like a real picture before it being built. The need for 3D architecture rendering cannot be overemphasis as it helps architects, designers, realtors, builders and homeowners do their job, well, efficiently and get a better pay.
There are a great number of rendering types but they can be roughly divided into 3 classifications:
- Exterior Rendering
- Interior Rendering
- Aerial Rendering
- Residential Rendering
- Commercial Rendering
- Stilled Image Rendering
- Floor Plan Rendering
- 3D Animation
- Virtual Reality Architecture
a. 3D Interior Rendering
This is a pictorial view of the internal space of the building. The 3D interior rendering service includes the arrangements of materials such as furniture, carpet, lighting, wall, curtain, fixtures, and even the appliance and menu board for those retail store property. Detail rendering requirement should be included in the drawing to make sure the 3D rendering company understand your expectation well and can bring your design to life without modifying again and again.
b. 3D Exterior Rendering
3D exterior rendering gives details on the building exterior and its surrounding, such as the pavement, parking space, recreation space, traffic, passerby and greenery. You can also order one or several versions of the weather, the environment and the time of the day you would like to render in a exterior project brief so as to show your target audience how the building looks like in the morning and at dawn.
To take an instance, one of our architect clients ordered 2 renderings for the hotel exterior project, one for a day scene and one for a night scene. We are told by our client that the project finally won great investment because the two photorealistic scenes impressed the investors and convinced them that project will have a considerable outcome that worth their money.
c. 3D Aerial Rendering
The aerial view is a realistic map of the site where the project is located.
It gives the pictorial location of the building, its surrounding environment, or other natural and artificial features (It includes landscape, terrain, roads, and parking lots) and displays the building as a whole to other buildings and the roadway network in a bird-eye view, which ease quick access to the building.
3D architectural rendering can also be categorized depending on whether it is a residential building or a commercial one.
a. Residential Rendering
Homeowners might need a interior rendering before remodeling their single-family house. That is a cost-effective step to take before you start the rebuilt.
For realtors and brokers, to attract more homebuyers and renters’ interest, you will need a 3D rendering before they list the property on the online marketplace like Realtors.com and Zillow and as a portfolio on your official site. Being a webmaster for 10 years myself, I definitely know how powerful a high-quality, photorealistic and updated portfolio can be for online marketing, especially in the designing and visualizing niche.
b. Commercial Rendering
Commercial rendering is one of the largest and most promising types of 3D rendering chose because a photorealistic and attractive rendering can impress the investors and win the project at a good price.
It also reduces cost from the contractor side like the comment from the client can be fixed or amended before construction take place, thereby helping against repairs. This help to reduce or prevent dispute between the client and the contractor and also saves cost as it reduces the wastage of materials and resources.
Projects such as a skyscraper, shopping malls, restaurants, coffee shop, office and retail store are a great portion of order we receive. The architecture design concept will fully correspond to your desire and presenting to the stakeholder and help you win a yes from the decision makers.
A List of Commercial Property Rendering Examples
a. Stilled Image Rendering
For the project that need only to showcase specific details like the facade elevation of the building exterior, a stilled image 3D rendering will be a good choice.
b. Floor Plan Rendering
For those trying to display the spatial relationship of each room and its size, height and other parameter, a floor plan rendering will be simple while intuitive to fulfill the requirement.
c. 3D Animation
If there are multiple selling points that you wish to highlight to the clients that are too much to include in one rendering and too time-consuming and costly in multiple rendering, a 3D animation with a 3D walkthrough or 3D flythrough will be ideal.
d. Virtual Reality Architecture
If you would like a more immersive experience to demonstrate to your clients, an architecture virtual reality will be the one. Your client will feel right there and can fully gets the design concept you are trying to showcase with 3D walkthrough, 3D flythrough and virtual tour.
With the extraordinary convenience that 3D rendering bring, both the architects, designers, realtors, brokers, contractors and property owners have rest of mind that what the client wants in detail can be produced before the construction is executed. So all possible problems are sight beforehand and possible solutions shall be provided.
However, even though some architectural professionals with design background can do simple rendering with the help of the software, a high-quality 3D rendering is a complicated process that requires years of artistic and technical knowledge and experience to master. Professionals must manage numerous creative and technological elements to ensure high-quality results. Therefore, outsourcing your 3D rendering project to a sophisticated architecture visualization company for a hyper-realistic rendering can be your ideal choice to win important project from your competitors.
