At KSR Architects, we know however beautiful a still rendered image or a 3D model may be, they have their limitations. You still, for example, have to make a mental calculation on the actual scale of a building.
Virtual Reality, commonly known as VR, has really helped us communicate our design ideas to our clients. It brings our designs to life and our clients have repeatedly marvelled at the sensation of actually being inside their unbuilt building.
We recently introduced VR to a large London borough. We found it invaluable as a tool to help the planners understand the scale and complexity of the development and how it integrated with the local context.
As a practice, we have always been at the forefront of new technology and we are now looking at how we can develop our VR capabilities further. We feel the future is certainly virtual!
