We work with clients all over the country (and a few in other countries). One downfall to this is that we rarely see what the project that we have produced an architectural rendering or animation for looks like once it’s been finished. Occasionally, the client will send us an image of the finished project, and we can compare how our rendering looks vs. the real thing. The images below are for “Regent Bal Harbour” a new hotel being constructed as part of “One Bal Harbour” by WCI Communities in Miami, Florida. The space is a typical hotel room.
Other times, if we are working on a project that is high profile enough, we’ll see the finished project on a website (and if we’re really lucky, they’ll use the rendering prior to using the photograph. This project is the newly finished 2008 HGTV Dream Home in Isla Morada, Florida.
One thing that is especially cool is seeing a project that we’ve created renderings for being constructed, which is the case with two projects that are being built a few blocks down from our office.
The first is “The River Homes at News Place” a project we worked with Dawson + Wissmach Architects for review board approval and client design approval. This is part of a block wide redevelopment called “News Place on Ellis Square” that includes retail, commercial, and residential spaces.
The second project, a new “Avia” hotel, actually backs up to “News Place” and is also well under way to being completed. I thought this image was fun because they are using 2 huge banners of the rendering we created to advertise the project.
