RESIDENTIAL HOME ARCHITECTURAL VISUALISATION.
Architectural Renderings For an Architectural Firm
We were asked to produce some marketing images for Vagdia and Holmes Arcitects in order to support their works for a private client. The outcome was to produce 2 street view images to portray atmosphere and lifestyle of the home. Below we will explain some of the processes and services we used to complete the task. In addition, we speak about some of the problems we faced and the decisions we made to come to the solution.
What services did our client require?
Through the power of 3D modelling we are able to create precision Architectural Models from 2D drawings. This is what we had to do in regards to this project, take the 2D drawings and create a 3D model. We are able to work with a wide range of files and formats from Architects such as DWG’s or any other modelling software file types. For example Revit or Rhino. Finally, Architectural usually mark up their camera angles on the 2D drawings as you can see on the image.
3D Rendering & Post Production
After the 3D model is created, we then produce grey card renderings that are approved by the client before being taken into the 3D rendering stages. After processing the 3D renderings, they are then taken in for post production. As you can see the post production makes a big difference, espeially with the people integration.

ARCHITECTURAL VISUALS FAQ
We can work off almost any type of 3D model but generally they may need to be edited to get the best results possible.
Format-wise, we can work with all the major software applications:
- 3D Studio Max
- And more
- Communicate as much as possible in your plans.
- Provide as many reference images as possible that you want your images to look like.
- Provide manufacturer specs.
- Collect as much feedback as you can for each draft to make the most of your revisions.
- Leave enough time. Although we are happy to accommodate tight timelines, it is our experience that projects that are not rushed will produce the best results.
Choose what style of rendering you want, for example sketch form or hyper realistic.
Providing us with an example of a photo or rendering that you like, in most cases, we can match it. Alternatively, if you make a markup of a camera angle on the architectural plans, we can base the renderings off of that.
Time of day and lighting
If you let us know in advance, we can usually match time-of-day lighting and interior and/or exterior lighting.
At XO3D, we have an extensive library of vegetation and can match most regions’ vegetation so that it is accurate to landscaping plans.
Furnishings and fixtures
We can match most interior design style. However, if you have custom furnishings and fixtures, we can custom create anything needed, custom models are at extra costs.
What different materials you want to use on certain aspects of your building.
It can be tricky to get good photos especially when the building is not yet developed. The best lighting is at sunrise or sunset. In most cases, you need to hire a professional photographer, which can be costly. With 3D images you always get:
- Good lighting
- Good weather
- Green grass
- Perfect camera angles
- Fully grown, beautiful landscaping
- Top-of-the-line furniture staging the interior shots
- Revisions and refining are part of the process
Other major benefits include:
- Enhance your visual communication
- Create cost effective solutions
- Social marketing images
- Easily show concepts and options
- Precise renderings
- Catch costly design mistakes
- Close your sales faster
- Shine above the competition
Read these in further detail at the top of the page.
The short answer is no. In contrast, architectural plans are ideal but not required. This is because we can work off other things such as drawings or sketches of even reference photos with some basic dimensions. Although, these options are not as accurate as using architectural plans.
At XO3D we offer high quality architectural renderings at excellent value and our customers typically range from small home builders to retail sized developers and even huge corporations. We tailor our images and costing for each client as we know some may not need certain level of realism. Read more on our pricing strategy here.
