Want to see what your project will look like before its built?
Exploring a space in 3D during the design phase gives you the opportunity to make expensive construction changes in virtual space, where the cost is limited to a few extra hours of drawing and modeling time.
For this new kitchen expansion in Wayland, we went through multiple versions before we got to this point (with a few more finish changes still to go). Each version pointed out different things we needed to consider or look at in more detail—mullion spacing in the skylight, cove lighting options, window layouts…
Panning the room, and zooming in allowed us to feel as though we were actually in the space. We looked at what both the daylighting and night lighting would be like in the kitchen, which was key in the design of the 8x16 foot gable skylight.
Construction will be starting soon. It will be interesting to see the built space, and to compare it to the 3D version.
We are excited to offer this new feature to those who want a richer design experience. It is a tool everyone can gain from, but its especially useful for clients who have difficulty with spatial visualization.
