Reconstructing Architecture

Re-visualize the architectural sector through the power of XR

XR is powering visualization for compelling architectural designs

The site has been chosen. The blueprints have been drafted. It is time to start building. But wait; wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could see the finished structure even before it was finished? Thanks to XR, you can. Using a smart device, XR makes it possible to view a 3D model of the proposed structure in the right context and an immersive 360-degree view—whether on the 2D blueprint or the actual site. If you are working in the construction sector, you can understand how critical it is to get every step right in the architectural journey. Mistakes can be time-consuming, not to mention costly.

Now, thanks to XR, you can view the construction in close detail and, by integrating it with the element of the actual site, spot potential errors in time, thus ensuring accuracy and savings. XR is already revolutionizing the architecture industry not only in terms of modeling but also when it comes to construction. And the benefits of XR span the entire process from engineering to designing. By using 3D plans and holograms, XR offers the ability to see ‘through’ walls, for example. This provides a clear path for complex installations such as wiring, making the process more efficient. XR is already laying a new foundation for the architecture and construction sector through breakthrough immersive tech. now take your expertise in the field to a new level.

What we do

The number of use cases for Industry/Product Visualisation is endless. Most IR projects that
Tiltlabs works on fall into one of the following categories:

Building inspection

Traditionally, inspection works have been carried out manually by more than one person with documentation taking a long time to process. Using XR, however, an engineer can get a virtual look at what is being built and is able to compare it side by side with the floor plan, making the overall process faster and more efficient.

Interior design

XR allows tenants and homeowners to easily visualize interior furnishings by overlaying AR
on the actual living space. This has been leveraged by many companies including Houzz, a
design firm.

Real estate

XR makes it possible for real estate agents to give potential tenants and buyers a tour of the location without them having to actually be there. This streamlines the overall process of buying and renting by enabling easier decision-making.

Post-earthquake investigation

One of the greatest challenges in the aftermath of a severe earthquake is re-constructing homes and other buildings. By using XR, city planners and developers can get an accurate view of where buildings used to be while also being able to assess the extent of damage.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How is AR/VR used in the architecture industry?
    The main application of AR is to project a 3D view of the finished structure on the actual site. This allows builders to see it from every angle and spot any costly mistakes in time. It also plays a part in building inspections as an engineer can get a virtual view of pipes and wiring and compare it to the blue print.
    What are some of the benefits architects gain from using immersive architectural design?
    Immersive architectural design:
    • Provides clear understanding of how designs work in real-world scenarios.
    • Assists with identification of errors early in the design process, saving time, effort and money.
    • Enables collaboration among multiple users.
    • Simplifies and speeds up revisions.
    • Helps with the training of new team members.
    • Decodes the design so that construction workers have clarity on their job.
    Why is a VR-rendered project better than a computer-rendered one?
    A VR-rendering offers more depth and greater perspective as compared to a computer- generated image. This allows the user to view the project with greater accuracy and in a more true-to-life way.
    Does an architecture company using AR/VR technology have an edge over companies that don’t?
    In a word—Yes. Architectural firms that use AR or VR can offer potential buyers and tenants a more immersive experience of the home or building. This is key to keeping them coming back.
    Does immersive technology assist with interior design?
    Yes. While virtual reality (VR) is useful in visualizing and designing new buildings, augmented reality (AR) and mixed reality (MR) assist with retrofitting, thus being the ideal technologies for interior design.
    What is the future of AR/VR in architecture?
    AR and VR are set to transform the architectural sector. Physical site visits could be a thing of the past as firms will be able to arrange virtual tours of the site anytime, anywhere. A related field that is sure to benefit is real-estate—home buyers can soon view their ideal home in stunning detail without having to endure endless viewings. This is just a glimpse of things to come.
