Visualizing the Design with Renderings

As architects sometimes we take for granted our ability to visualize the design solution before it is drawn. It is a skill that we develop over the years in our profession, and it allows us to quickly find solutions for our clients. We wave our hands, point to non-existent walls, and verbalize the design as if it is there – but sometimes (usually) our clients cannot visualize the design in the same way. So we convey our thoughts through sketches, line drawings, and more line drawings. However, for some details, that is not enough. Sometimes we need to also provide renderings that have people, light fixtures, windows, and daylight shown so our clients can understand what the space will feel like before it is built.

We don’t get the chance to do renderings for every project, but we use it as a tool in specific cases to help our clients make decisions. Here are some projects that we have renderings we have produced recently.
