Making the Sale – Creating Floor Plans for Real Estate Listings

Any real estate professional knows just how important floor plans are when it comes to finding and winning over prospective buyers. The last thing you want for a showing is to see the disappointment in your customers’ eyes when they realize the space is completely different than they imaged. Instead, you want to give them a clear visual of what they should be expecting.

Like This or Like That

How we perceive our environment and how it affects us has been studied for centuries. From the ancient art of Feng Shui, to the study of architectural phenomenology from the early 1950s, trying to understand how we physically and emotionally connect with a space is no new concept. From light and shadows, to object placement, materials, colors and accessories, even the tiniest aspect of a room’s design can affect how we feel. To demonstrate, we’ve used the pCon.planner to show how the same piece of furniture can fit into two entirely different settings, one cozy and calming and the other airy and light, by simply changing aspects like color and materials.

Timeless Furniture for the Evolving Workplace

The workplace is constantly evolving. The border between “private” and “work” is no longer as distinctive as it was 20 years ago. This new working environment has brought with it flexibility and, in turn, more creative leeway for employees.

Such a blurring of lines also determines where, when and how employees actually work, making flexible work spaces and open meeting and conference rooms even more important. These changes bring room concepts into focus that alter persepectives and foster creative thinking.

Design with a New Perspective

As humans we feed off of creativity. That’s what makes us so interesting. We can each look at something, whether it be art, the clouds in the sky or a piece of furniture, and draw completely different ideas and inspiration from the exact same scene. We see things from our own perspective, if you will.

Brand-conscious? Incorporate your logo into your renderings

A great deal of time goes into a rendering. From the idea and planning to the completed image, you could end up spending hours, days or even weeks on such a project. Wired on coffee, highly concentrated and with a nervously-shaking foot, you shift tables and change light settings until finally… the finished product for your customer presentation or website shines on the monitor in all its glory. Now only one thing is missing: your logo.

HDRI as a Light Source – Atmospheric Renderings

HDRI als Lichtquelle

What is it exactly in an image that speaks to our emotions? The setting, sure, but that can be interpreted in so many different ways. Why do we feel such a connection with some images, and less with others?

It may not be the answer for everything, but it’s no questions that there is usually one key factor: LIGHT.

Storage is often overlooked, pushed to the background of many renovation and design projects. Truth be told, what we store actually deserves our utmost attention. After all, we wouldn’t be storing it in the first place if it wasn’t of some importance. From user manuals and personal items to the storage of fine art collections and archives, storage systems are essential in maintaining the integrity and condition of the items being stored away.
