Top Advantages of VR in Architecture Design

Posted on October 26, 2017

As technology is being embraced by different industries, it has started benefitting us in many unprecedented ways. For instance, the use of VR (Virtual Reality) in the construction and architectural industry has completely revolutionized the way we used to work.

By leveraging real-time renderings and motion tracking, designers and architects can conduct a physical walk through various segments of a home or building. Moreover, with VR architects and designers can design spaces with 3D spatial awareness, which can’t be experienced through simple 2D renderings, floorplans, and elevations.

Top 5 Advantages of VR in Architecture

VR is incredibly helpful in the architectural processes and offers a wide array of advantages. Here are some of the top benefits of VR in Architecture Design:

  1. Simulation of Real World Scenarios

    VR technology is now being used to explore and better design some specific elements of the buildings. By leveraging VR technology, one can efficiently design critical elements like fire escape routes. With VR architects can easily simulate real-time fire scenarios to check functional aspects of their designs, such as how long does it take to evacuate the entire building, and which routes would be the safest.

  2. Customizing Individual Experiences

    Virtual Reality allows architects to visualize things that are not there, and thus, they can easily see how their room, house, or building would look after project completion. They can also check how the furniture and color schemes would look after the building would be ready, and that’s why, if any changes are required in the design it can be incorporated much earlier. You don’t have to wait for the design to finish to see how everything looks.

  3. The “First-mover” Advantage

    VR technology in the field of architecture is relatively new and many people aren’t using it currently. Both Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality are new, and adopting these at this time will give any company an early-mover advantage.

  4. Lower Cost of Implementation

    A virtual reality experience can be easily designed quickly at a fraction of the cost when compared to the typical designing process. Besides, VR experience can be incorporated easily in a basic showroom to allow prospective customers to tour multiple locations, layouts, and buildings, all in a centralized place.

  5. Superior Construction Training

    With VR, new construction workers can be effectively trained. Right from determining varying material requirements for different phases of construction to the site walk-throughs, VR experiences can provide a proactive approach for making the construction sites more intuitive, efficient, and above all safer.

    I love what you said about how a virtual reality experience can be designed quickly and easily at a fraction of the cost. My aunt is looking redo some designs for a building she owns and wants to see what she’s getting before work begins. Thank you for the information about how a VR experience can be incorporated in a basic showroom to allow customers to tour locations without having to go to a new place.
