Designing in architecture: the render

The project: the beginning of an idea

In the last weeks we have presented several projects that Archiverde has realised over time, but how does a project come about?

Planning is the basis for the whole work, without it the realisation itself would be impossible. Several qualities are required, not only architectural competence, but also creativity and logical approach.

Designing means turning an abstract idea into practice and being able to interpret the customer’s wishes precisely and consistently.

It is therefore essential to foresee the end result, also anticipating possible problems that might arise during the actual realisation.

A preliminary phase is the analytical phase, which is carried out by observing and studying the area where the final outcome of the project will take place. In fact, we know how careful Archiverde is to respect the morphological characteristics of the territory in which it operates.

An architectural technique: rendering

The project starts at the moment you develop a render (like the one we see in the picture). Rendering is an architectural technique that allows a realistic preview of the project, in three dimensions. Besides being a very useful tool for architects, it is also a way to communicate clearly and effectively with the client, who can see with his own what the end result will look like.

The more details are included in the render, the more realistic the design will become. For example, a detail that should not be overlooked is the lighting, which the closer it is to natural lighting, the more it will be like being inside the garden of one’s dreams.
