Utilizing The Technique Of Architectural Renderings


It is no surprise that in this day and age of computers; architects are using the technique of architectural rendering with many of their projects. Also known as architectural illustrations, this is the technique of creating dimensional images with the attributes of the architects design.

Architects are using complex 3D programs as well as rendering programs to create detailed and life-like images. These scale images are often used to make walk-throughs, fly-overs, virtual tours and even still renderings of proposed and existing projects. There are quite a few types of businesses utilizing this technique, but the most popular use is in the architectural industry.

The images made with architectural rendering often contain viewpoints, lighting, shading and geometric information of the design. These renderings are often architectural 3D models created to the proper proportions, scale and utilize real life textures, colors, finishes and even materials. These things can be played around with a bit until the final acceptable effect is achieved. Instead of wasting time by building and tearing down, the final results are there for the immediate approval.

Sometimes, these images are also called photo-real renderings, but whatever they are called, the technique of architectural rendering is amazing. They play a big role for both architects as well as in real estate. This helps people make final decisions even before breaking ground on a project.

People are given lifelike images and specifics that help them understand exactly what their structure is going to look like when it is finished, down to the color of the paint.

The technique of architectural rendering not only helps architects achieve a great looking final model of their structure, but it can really save people money. Instead of not liking the way a structure looks after it has already been built, it is easy to see the final result and change it before any costly work is already done. There is no need for expensive tear-downs and rebuilds.
 


Some Information On Architectural Renderings And Fees


Sometimes when one walks through a lobby of a commercial center or any big building at that, one can see scale models of a future project or even a scale model of the building itself. Also on the walls of the building near that scale model are drawings showing what the proposed project looks like or is intended to look like. These scale models and most of the drawings depicting scenes with that building are called architectural renderings. Different architectural renderings and fees are offered by many architects the world over to give that real estate project an extra punch.

Depending on the complexity and the prestige of the real estate project that is being envisioned, the fees for renderings differ not according to quantity but to quality as well. Architectural renderings especially those geared for financial reviews will cost a fair amount. Even more so when the project is launched and potential buyers are invited based on nothing but drawing and visual aid presentations.

There are however cheaper ways to get architectural renderings done should your own firm or outfit be too busy to make them or perhaps lacks the necessary manpower and skills. The architectural renderings of some firms are actually subcontracted out to third parties that are not necessarily in the same country of domicile. This is in large thanks to a more globalized world that we live in.

Some firms outsource to agents in India and China where they can be acquired quite cheaply. Simple renderings of a few samples may cost anywhere from around two hundred dollars. More complicated housing projects may cost anywhere from upwards of seven hundred dollars to one thousand five hundred dollars. Those that need a more artistic and personalized look may opt to pay over two thousand dollars for watercolour schemes and renderings.

Third party consultants that do this may charge a pretty premium for these services and one must be prepared to pay a lot more if the project is urgent in nature and needs to be done in a couple of days. The problem also with third party consultants is that they may only have an inkling of what the project proponent wants and not the whole entire idea. This can lead to misunderstandings and perhaps even more delays and costs.

The choice of a firm or individual who will do an architectural rendering on a third party contract basis has both advantages and disadvantages. Definitely one will not trust a great real estate project to a couple of beginners or to a firm that has no track record. Thus prudence is the key in choice of the provider.

Those with track records do charge a heftier premium and charges and the renderings can easily reach thousands of dollars and a great percentage of the project. However, their concepts are not only seen on the paper that will hang on some wall or a scale model they will make for you. They can also do three dimensional walkthroughs of your completed project as if it has already been constructed.

Through the use of advanced programming techniques and software, third party contractors can make a great portfolio your unfinished real estate project both in hard copy and soft copy formats. This portfolio can serve both to market your project to clients as well as your financiers. In all, how much you are willing to spend and where you will spend it will dictate your choices to subcontract your drawings out or not.

 

 

Architecture Quotes

 

I've always believed that architecture is more important than decoration. Scale and proportion give everlasting satisfaction that cannot be achieved by only icing the cake.
Billy Baldwin
 

Architecture would lead us to all the arts, as it did with earlier mean: but if we despise it and take no note of how we are housed, the other arts will have a hard time of it indeed.
William Morris, The Beauty of Life
 

Even if it's not a style of architecture or period you like, a decorator has to have a feel for a house's personality and try not to fight against it. I like to get the juice out of a house and not spoil it.
Nancy Lancaster, Her Life, Her World, Her Art
 

I like lots of air, order, personal objects and beautiful architecture.
William Hodgins
 

I make no special difference between architecture and design, they are two different stages of invention.
Ettore Sottsass, A Critical Biography
 

I suppose the most marked example of color as structure is in the Byzantine use of mosaic decoration that becomes architecture. The decoration of the interiors so related to the form that they fuse. In less elaborate interior design this is always the ideal approach to color - used not only as just color alone.
Van Day Truex, Interiors, Character, and Color
 

I try to design rooms around their architecture or to create architecture where none exists.
Eleanor McMillen Brown, Creating a Beautiful Home by Alexandra Stoddard
 

If the 18th century is often described by architectural historians as the great age of the English house, the Victorian period might equally well be called the great age of the English home.
Philippa Tristam, Living Space
 

If there is a reason for keeping the wall very quiet, choose a pattern that works all over without pronounced lines...Put very succinctly, architectural effect depends upon a nice balance of horizontal, vertical and oblique. No rules can say how much of each; so nothing can really take the place of feeling and good judgement.
William Morris
 

Interior decorating is the frivolous sister of the architectural profession.
Michael Taylor, The Finest Rooms
 

It is to the client's advantage and also the architect's, to have a trained and experienced decorator with both technical knowledge and an understanding of interior architectural detail so as to be able to assemble intelligently the proper textures, colors, furniture and objects to make a consistent room. If all these things are taken into consideration in the original planning...a great many difficulties can be anticipated.
Eleanor McMillen Brown, Interior Architecture and Decoration
 

It is usually a mistake to impose an individual's taste on a room that has its own....style. Conversely, to put very fine pieces of furniture in a room that is without architectural distinction is as absurd as wearing a tiara with a bathing suit.
Nancy Lancaster
 

My furniture is an exercise in architecture or architectural mood.
Ettore Sottsass, A Critical Biography
 

Neither good taste nor wealth... can transform a house into a home, for a home does not consist in the quality of its architecture or decor, but in the quality of the lives that it expresses.
Philippa Tristam, Living Space
 

Whether it's fine arts or music or architecture, the most compelling works are finessed and manipulated so subtly that you're barely aware of the artist's hand.
Scott Johnson
