Zorzi and Rietveld Architects have teamed up to showcase our new exciting designs by harnessing the power of virtual reality. Included in our design process is a state-of-the-art virtual reality rendering of the designed home leaving nothing to the imagination. The virtual reality rending viewed through 3D googles allows you to immerse yourself in the home before it goes into construction allowing you to visualize details in the home. The West Australian has kindly written an editorial on our partnership, please view the editorial at the following link.
Using virtual reality, the technology essentially marries two and three-dimensional design data to produce a realistic interactive home design.
For Zorzi Managing Director David Reynolds, this type of technology demonstrates how the building company is at the forefront of innovation.
“This cutting-edge software gives our clients a clear understanding of the finished product in the very early stages of design,” he said.
“With virtual reality, you can see and understand how multiple pieces go together and from different views.”
While virtual and augmented reality has made its mark in the gaming realm, Rietveld Architects Principal Architect Mark Rietveld said it was now being used by some of the world’s top home builders, developers, and architects.
“It’s reshaping architectural practices”, he said.
“This technology provides a precise vision for everyone involved by creating interactive three-dimensional environments”.
As a registered architect and member of the Australian Institute of Architects, Mr Rietveld said this technology was truly transformative.
“I’ve been practising architecture for more than 30 years and have seen how the industry has evolved over time”, he said.
“We now have the technology and tools to provide quality designs that are immersive and realistic.
“It allows individuals to explore a virtual representation of a particular room, floor or entire home design”.
Not only does the software deliver accurate home designs, Mr Rietveld said it could minimize potential mistakes being made in the construction phase.
” These design concepts are not just for clients, they form the overall design framework and are used throughout the entire build”, he said.
“This makes sure everyone is on the same page when it comes to constructing the home – reducing the number of onsite errors or mistakes”.
Mr Reynolds said the new technology made it easier to produce accurate costings earlier in the building process.
By giving our clients this experience, we can be transparent about the expected costings associated with the entire design”, he said.
“The concept enables our clients to experiment with all the finishes they want.
“As a bespoke builder, we understand a home’s design is the single most important element of the build, as it will influence every decision which follows. This design-first approach allows us to push the envelope when it comes to exploring what is possible.”
