The Henley Standard features an article on our development of properties on Horsepond Road (Gallowstree Common) and the benefits of virtual reality when it comes to viewing / and buying a property off-plan.
“The virtual reality technology lets people get a feel for a building and whether or not it’s a good match for them. Beforehand, when trying to explain to clients how a building would look, we would watch their eyes glaze over — but now we see their excitement as the penny drops.
We work closely with property developers and expect VR to attract and help potential buyers — not only to visualise but to experience virtually what they are buying into.
This is an incredibly exciting time for VR. For the world of property it offers a whole new dimension. But for me as an architect, VR software is a great tool to develop designs, too.
In architecture, I anticipate in the near future that we will be using this technology not only to view buildings but also to design them, manipulating 3D elements and sculpting spaces effectively within the VR environment.”
