10 TYPES OF ARCHITECTURAL RENDERING

Updated: Sep 10, 2021


At 3DHomeMedia, we generally utilize a rendering for nearly all our design projects to explain the design intent to our clients. Sometimes considered an extra, an architectural rendering has many benefits.

It generates enthusiasm for the project, offers better design accuracy, provides a comprehensive site view, and catches problems early on. Design changes get more manageable with better visualization of the final result, which ultimately keeps construction costs in check and has incredible marketing potential.

An architectural design agency can help you choose appropriate rendering that relates to the specifics of your project. Here we quickly brief you on the ten types of Architectural Rendering you can request at your convenience to create distinctive designs:



1. Exterior 3D Rendering

Exterior architectural renderings afford a good view of the façade. Architects or builders planning to propose new constructions can benefit from these types of visualization services. The model can be very straightforward or full of design components, including landscape, surrounding properties, fences, streets, and even people to furnish a sense of location.



2. Interior 3D Rendering

Interior renderings accurately represent the colors, shadows, and lights of the insides of space for a truly immersive experience. These can exhibit any variety of features to market the property in the best manner possible. 2D interior models give a sense of space, while 3D visualizations highlight interesting and intricate indoor details. It is a realistic interior rendering to help clients envision the living area before making their final decision.



3. Site Plan / Aerial Rendering

A site plan rendering includes landscape, people, terrain, season, shadows, delineation, topography, vehicles, and more. Therefore, it is a 2D or 3D architectural representation of every nook and cranny of the site. These are practically indistinguishable from photographs and help in marketing new developments with utmost detail.



4. 3D Floor Plan Rendering


A floor plan is usually a drawing showing the design of the construction project from above. Commonly used are 2D floor plans that traditionally represent the site’s general layout so you can grasp the size and orientation of the space. These are effective and solve the purpose. However, 3D floor plan renderings add additional depth and detail to the design.



5. CG Panoramas

This type of rendering presents a 360-degree panorama of every corner of the future construction. It is time-consuming, requires more effort, but it transforms 2D images into 3D visualization. It is a big trend in architecture where clients can freely and independently explore all details without anybody else’s interference. CG panoramas are aimed at persuading clients to purchase the design using their own intuition.



6. 3D Animation


Animated renderings are better than CG panoramas as these walk you around a site in three-dimension. These are immersive renderings ideal for real estate agents or brokers to allow their clients to experience the project’s specifics without traveling to the location. It helps explore the space and get a strong sense of its overall feel, layout, and features.



7. 3D Virtual Walkthrough

A virtual walkthrough offers the most efficient and immersive client experience that works better than 3D models in several scenarios. It provides a set of panoramic photos sequenced in a video to further add some text and sound. It is like a literal walkthrough of the space to grasp how it will look in the future. Realism allows professionals to present the design better, and clients can go through every detail before Okaying the project.



8. Virtual Remodeling

These renderings help update structural elements such as paint changes, bath/ kitchen remodeling, and backyard improvements. You can explore different design options cost-efficiently and bring the remodeling vision to life. This way, your clients can better visualize the true potential of the property.



9. Virtual Landscape & Swimming Pool

Step into the future of landscape and pool design with ground-breaking and innovative techniques to amaze your clients and reveal gorgeous designs. Virtual pool and landscape renderings make it easy to customize depth, personalize landscape, detect and recalculate changes, and transform ideas into fully interactive 3D presentations. Furthermore, you can add deck, fences, safety railings, tennis court, balconies, custom landscape, and swimming pool to unveil beautiful results.



10. Virtual Staging & Interior Design

Digitally staging photographs is more prevalent in real estate marketing, interior designing, and photography. It is a cost-efficient technological advancement that arranges less complicated architectural elements of particular rooms in much less time. A photorealistic and stimulating interior design is achieved with the help of a graphic editor who enhances the space with their specialized skills to showcase a clutter-free property. It is a contemporary and effective alternative to traditional staging techniques.



Communicate Your Design with 3D Home Media

An architectural rendering is quite crucial for your construction project. It may not be a necessity, but indeed a valuable tool to communicate design details that you can benefit from in many ways.

Thus, choosing the right architectural rendering style is more than what pleases the eye. It must also describe the property’s narrative, not just what it will look like to an ordinary man.
