Single family new project in Mediterranean style. Furnishing phase.
At this project we completed the architectural designs from the Architect with the exterior stone accents, and all the interior design and decoration. The pictures show that we are at the phase of receiving and placing furnishings, window treatments and accesories.
At the initial stage starting working with the client and the architect, we present all designs in 3D, giving to the client an easy way to visualize the different volumes and spaces making virtual tours through each room. As the decisions are taken, the renderings are completed with more details like the cabinets, doors, windows, lighting, furniture,... till the final accesories.
Each space is presented for the client to feel the project already finish even before the construction begins. This way we avoid "surpises" that may delay the schedule to the builder and subcontractors, making it more efficient to control the budget till the end of the process.
