Nestled in the heart of Norfolk's picturesque countryside, this stunning Georgian rectory had undergone several unsympathetic alterations over the years, leaving it incompatible with modern family life. Recognising the need to restore the property to its former glory, an interior designer was brought in to propose a new extension that complements and is sympathetic to the existing architecture. To communicate the designer's vision to stakeholders, our studio was tasked with creating an architectural visualisation of the proposed extension.
Understanding the Designer's Vision
Our first step in creating the architectural visualisation was understanding the interior designer's vision for the proposed extension. The designer had proposed the formation of a new kitchen from a previously under-utilised storeroom to restore the proportions of the principal rooms. The new extension was to be sympathetic to the existing architecture, using natural materials and finishes that complemented the original building. The designer also wanted to create a collection of well-connected and large, family-friendly living spaces that reflected the status and architectural integrity of the house.
Creating the 3D Model
Once we had a clear understanding of the interior designer's vision, we set to work on creating a 3D model of the proposed extension. We created a highly detailed and accurate model representing the proposed extension using the latest software and techniques. We paid close attention to the materials and finishes specified by the interior designer, ensuring that the new extension was sympathetic to the existing architecture.
Adding Lighting and Textures
To bring the 3D model to life, we added lighting and textures to create a realistic and immersive environment. We used natural lighting to showcase the stunning views of the surrounding countryside and created a warm and inviting atmosphere that reflected the interior designer's vision. We paid close attention to the details, adding textures and finishes that accurately represented the materials specified by the designer.
Creating the Architectural Visualisation
To give stakeholders a better understanding of the proposed extension, we created an architectural visualisation that showcased the new living spaces and highlighted the design's key features. The architectural visualisation allowed stakeholders to experience the extension from a first-person perspective, giving them a realistic sense of the scale and layout of the new living spaces. We used music and sound effects to create a fully immersive experience that brought the proposed extension to life.
In conclusion, our studio created an architectural visualisation of the proposed extension to a listed Georgian rectory in Norfolk that accurately represented the interior designer's vision. We used the latest software and techniques to create a highly detailed and accurate 3D model, paying close attention to the materials and finishes specified by the designer. We added lighting and textures to create a realistic and immersive environment and created a walkthrough that allowed stakeholders to experience the extension from a first-person perspective. Architectural visualisation was essential in communicating the designer's vision to stakeholders, ensuring everyone understood the proposed extension.
