Architects and other design professionals use virtual reality in all stages of the design process. It’s a versatile tool and you must know how to use it. In this blog, we’ll tell you which parts of the design process to innovate. Read to understand how virtual reality improves a design team’s workflow and performance.
Validating the design
Virtual reality offers realistic and immersive experiences to your client, making it easy for them to understand the design.
At the same time, VR allows the architects and designers in the team to evaluate their work. It is a 1:1 scale of the design and it gives a comprehensive view of their design. It helps them check their work more efficiently than reviewing 2D and 3D images. Looking at a true-to-scale, photorealistic, immersive environment is a better way to judge the layout, fixtures, finishes, material and colour palettes.
VR is a tool to perfect a design. Use it to correct imperfections and finalise your design. Do not feel reluctant — not even once.
Collaborating during design meetings
VR is a great tool to use during design meetings with the client. The high-end, immersive visuals help you discuss your vision and your concept with clients and stakeholders. Believe us, anyone viewing the design in VR will immediately understand how the room looks and feels like. They can evaluate the design on the spot.
The best part is that VR apps used in architecture enable clients to make small design changes instantly. They can see the effect of the changes they want to make and they can make better design decisions.
Checking and finalising the design
VR walkthroughs help you judge the design. While you do, mark the parts of the design that needs fixing. Find the errors while they’re in front of you and fix them before it’s too late.
You can use VR in a lot of ways to improve the design process. We hope we helped you understand how virtual reality improves a design team’s workflow and performance. If you need help with integrating VR in your architecture firm or design business, contact us and we’ll be more than happy to help.
