What is a Virtual Architecture Tour?

A virtual tour in architecture is something that technological advances have contributed to this beautiful art.

In past times, an architect had to express the project through drawings and sketches. The power of imagination, the ability to design and draw were the main keys to transmit how people could have imagined a project not yet built.

Since the computer became a work tool for architects, there was an evolution of how to present projects. What caught the most attention in new architects was the ability to create 3D architectural plants. These new technological advances have progressed to the point of being able to make photorealism models in 3D and virtual architecture tours.

Virtual tours are very useful tools for architects, because it exposes the project as it will become; it gives you a real view of solar orientation depending on where your terrain is, the materials you would like to use, desired interior and exterior colors and even furniture.

Now a days modern constructions are using this type of technology as a way of showing customers how their project will be; that’s why making a virtual tour is a good investment for any kind of project because in a long term it becomes cheaper for them due to that they will know how their project will come out at the end; and they will see if the design meets their expectancies.

Having a virtual tour helps the project to save time; because with it you will have your project completely defined.

If you would like to have a virtual tour of your project contact us by sending us an email to architectureanddesingpnv@gmail.com or by leaving us your information here and we´ll be glad to contact you.

Yaspe Offices

Yaspe Offices; is an interior design project, where the intension was to create an innovative workspace and make the final project with an economic cost.

The project involves the creation of some work modules for an office of an architectural firm design.

The project consists in three modules of work; the first module is specially designed for draftsmen. This room has separate spaces one for a computer, and the other spaces for individual work for each draftsmen.

The second and third module are joined together in a shape of a horseshoe; the first part of the room is the area for customer attention were you may find a cubicle for a secretary and next to it, there is enough space for the administrative area, also this room has space for storage area. The second part has a large storage cabinet which becomes a desk for reviewing plans and saving them; also at the end of the room there is a snack area where you can find a bar fridge, a microwave and sink.

Steps for visual architectual projects

This post is a little bit different than the ones we´ve been posting before. In this post will be talking about the steps you´ll need to create a virtual project.

Many times it will seem not common or perhaps even expensive, and this is because we do not know this area of architecture. So the question is what do you need?

First of all you´ll need a draft of your project, preferably you´ll need to have your project plans in digital format, and know well how your project is. Then you´ll need to send the information by email or deliver us a USB and explain what part of your project you want to see, for example facades or certain interior and exterior spaces.

It is also necessary to know what types of materials you would like to see in your project, and also what kind of furniture. In case of not knowing what materials to use you can order some proposals. With all this, you can carry out a virtual architecture project which takes place between 15 and 25 days. The cost is from 1,000USD to 1,500USD. It can be done in any part of the world regardless if the company and the customer are in different places there for it can be carried out without going anywhere and via electronic.

A virtual architecture project can be very useful for either sales presentation or to know how the project comes out and to see if it really meets the needs and tastes of the customer.

Kulapat Yantrasast (Venice House)

 

Y1

 

Kulapat Yantrasast is an architect of Thai origin who came to revolutionize modern architecture with great designs, ideas and innovation. His first contact with the architecture was at the age of 10, when his small house suffered some damage, so his father asked him to redesign it. From that moment he felt great attraction to architecture and design.

Kulapat graduated from Chulalongkorn University with honors and later performed MSc and PhD at the University of Tokyo.

In Tokyo he had the opportunity to meet the great architect Tadao Ando, with whom he has collaborated on some projects.

In 2003 Kulapat came to L.A. where he made an architecture office called “WHY ARCHITECTURE”, which seeks to create sustainable architecture, unique and that fits the characteristics of each location. One of his most amazing projects was the house design he had made in Venice California.

This incredible project used few materials and a single structure system. The project was based on a concrete structure with walls and monolithic slabs, combining glass and vains with some details of marble and wood. The house is oriented toward the beach for the best views and the project was accommodated so that all spaces had excellent views over the pool and the beach. Large windows were also used for better lighting.

This amazing project has the ability to show how anyone with simple lines and few materials can achieve a masterpiece.

Offices VG

Is a small building created for the purpose of accommodating modern offices. This project is based on functionality; to do this we optimized the spaces because the proportions of the land were not the best.

The idea was to create basement parking, getting 100% of buildable area. The building features are: basement, 3 floors and a roof garden. Each floor has restrooms, four independent offices and stairs.

The style of this project is modern, for it is based on straight lines, using the combination of materials in the same range of colors, textures and fine materials with near perfect symmetry.

The design is based on three outdated cubes, the two cubes in the background form the main body of the structure, while the front cube is the staircase. The project also has terraces intercepting between its sides and floors allowing an architectural rhythm that gives identity to the building.
