“Architectural visualisation” is usually sloppily defined as “seeing designs before they’re built”. Architectural visualisation is a lot more than just imagery. It includes a range of design ideas, multiple presentation options, and has a lot of real value for consumers, too, when considering design choices.
Anyone who’s ever worked in design will tell you that the mainstream design market has a bad habit of being about 20 years behind the designers. That was the case with 3D rendering.
Bizarre as it may seem, 3D rendering wasn’t exactly welcomed by the design industry when it began. It was definitely not seen as an asset by the marketing gurus or the paper-based design industry. At best, it was considered a fad, not suitable for the real world marketplace. (Ironically, the industry had no problems with 2D rendering, but didn’t see why 3D rendering, in a 3D world, might work.)
Fortunately for the future of interior design and building design, the experts had their own design ideas about 3D rendering. These expert modellers patiently persevered with 3D rendering from its comparatively clunky beginnings to the current state of fluent rendering.
If you’re looking for a building designer for your new home, you may find yourself with an unexpectedly steep learning curve. The first part of this learning curve is finding the experts who can deliver the design you want. The second part is finding professionals who can explain the design process and your choices. Good communication is an essential part of this process, helping to avoid misunderstandings and possibly expensive, time-consuming mistakes.
If you’ve been looking at bathroom designs recently, you will have noticed that neutral tones, particularly greys, are very common. There’s a good reason for this move away from the old white standard colour scheme in bathrooms.

“Do we really need to renovate?”
This is the common cry of many business managers and the answer to this question is invariably yes. Sooner or later, every office will need renovating and the later you leave it, the more likely it is to cost. On top of this, a smart office renovation could actually deliver incredible long-term value to your business, from the productivity of your team to the value of your building.
So, how exactly do you approach a smart office renovation and how to you avoid design pitfalls?
The kitchens of the future are already being nurtured in the designs of today. Space, functionality and efficiency are all emerging as important trends in the most used room in the home, with island counters and separate kitchen benches highlighting the practicality of this space.
Have you ever visited an office that has that real “wow” factor? These offices are more than just elegant designs and practical spaces. They send a message of professionalism, confidence and success and they project these values onto clients and staff.
The most inspirational offices make a statement about their business and they encourage everyone who walks through their doors to come on that mission too.
These might seem like lofty qualities for your building to live up to, but the truth is, it’s easy to create an office like this.
Let Motivo Design Studio show you how.
Upgrading your reception area or waiting room can be an excellent choice for interior design, adding both practical and aesthetic benefits to your business. An upgrade is also a good way to enhance business image and encourage commercial growth.
When considering reception area building design, think about the costs and practicalities for your location. The facilities needed for a GP’s waiting room will be different from those for a corporate office. An accountancy practice might also prefer different aesthetics and amenities for their clients.
These issues are straightforward, but it’s a good idea to consider all your design options before making any financial commitment. There are many different options available, so it’s a good idea to explore all your choices.
Redesigning your building can be an exceptionally good move and while it may seem expensive, it can actually make you money and avoid major renovation expenses. The key to success is in the design process and the design you choose. A redesign offers the opportunity to increase the value of your premises, solve onsite issues, and re-define your asset in the market.
Redesigning can be a major business opportunity. We’re going to show you how it works and how to recognise great opportunities for a building redesign.
You could be forgiven for thinking that commercial building designs are all pretty much the same. Warehouses, office blocks and shopping malls look similar but nothing could be further from the truth.
In design terms, the resemblance between these buildings is largely cosmetic. This is why it is so important to have a detailed design before choosing your builder.
