Revolution in home design and interior decoration
The client is a developer from UK who invests in modern mansion flats. They want to pre-sell as many flats as possible, as soon as possible. They have noticed that with the use of virtual reality tour they can accelerate the process - VR interior presentation is now a hot topic in housing market
Impress the home buyer with stunning visuals
The challenge was to create a photo-realistic, interactive visualization of interior designed especially for virtual reality but also showing our capabilities in the field of graphic design. VR interior should be highly-detailed and aesthetically pleasing to the customer's eyes.
It this case we aim a combination of spatial presentation with real-time configuration possibility.
The software solution was aimed to resolve challenges related to:
Improved customer satisfaction with hands on experience in VR
We created a beautiful, photo-realistic VR interior visualizations, which attract the attention of new customers. We combined spatial presentation with the possibility of real-time configuration. The biggest challenge was to just get close to the sophistication and artistic spirit of the bohemian Paris of those times, which was present in every single element of the original apartment.
The most important thing was to determine on which device the client would like to present VR interior visualizations. The quality of objects in PC VR devices (like HTC Vive) and Mobile VR (like Gear VR) is quite significant. The customer decided to do it first because he would like to present it in his office anyway. We decided that Unreal Engine would be the best to prepare such an application.
Using Unreal Engine, we could very quickly show the customer the expected result of VR interior visualization. In the built stage, we could replace objects that have been adapted and focus on details. The team of developers decided that the weekly sprints for this project are the optimal solution. After each week of work we have organised a remote presentation meetings where we did the demo.
The VR interior app allows you to move freely and naturally in the virtual space of the created rooms in which the models provided by the client were used. The lights on the stage were also set accordingly – a time of day, mood, etc., which is very important if we are looking at a virtual room in the first person’s perspective. The client was particulary interested in showing some of the fabrics.
New way of the presentation
Thanks to the presented application, which uses only the basic advantages of VR, the customer has radically changed the way in which he presents the client with visualization. It is worth adding that it happens virtually without loss of quality – the presented objects still have photorealistic quality. In addition, it is possible to view everything from the perspective of the first person rather than looking at the computer screen. Certainly, expanding the offer with such solutions will be a desirable element for some, especially in the context of more demanding clients.
Key highlights of the service delivered
Amazing technology stack
The VR interior application was created using Unreal Engine. Architectural elements were created in 3DS Max, and graphic details were refined in Photoshop. We employed 3D modeling and simulations based on original plans, complete with interior design and a virtual walk feature.
