There is a vivid awareness of the role of entertainment in our life, be it physical or online. When architects design these spaces, the most important thing to keep in mind is people’s interaction physically and emotionally to the environment. Here, 3D rendering services bring striking change in this game. With the incredible realistic materials in the 3D scene, architects are able to create memorable and lasting architectural interventions that will define the experiences of the space.
Paul’s team was designing the interior of a bar lounge in Louisville, Kentucky, USA. He talked with our project manager about their vision of this future club, and hope to use our 3D techniques to bring the design to life.
Let’s check the story behind Churchill Downs Bar in the United States, and how our 3D artists give life to this interior space.
3D Interior Rendering Process
Stage 1: the Scope of Work
Get to understand the scope of this project is our priority. As Churchill Downs is a horse racing complex, the renders of the bar should have a compelling and inviting atmosphere to its viewers. In the kick-off meeting, we got to know Paul was looking for five images to show the spaces in the bar, namely:
- Three views to show different spaces of seating, including the booth, bar seating and regular seating area.
- One view of the bar with a glimpse of the catering table.
- One view from a corner to demonstrate the alcohol wall and cabinet.
With such clear goal in mind, we sorted the received files from Paul. To help the 3D rendering process, we have:
- The floor plan. With the camera angles This offers a clear map of what we going to do next.
- The interior elevations both in pdf and dwg. These information will help our 3D modeler with building the 3D model.
- The material references. It indicates the material and texture choices, to assist our 3D team choose the realistic material for the each object in the 3D scene.
Stage 2: 3D Modeling from CAD plans
When we were studying the CAD plans, Paul sent the geometry plan especially marked the ceiling height. This is because Paul wanted each interior view to see more spaces. With the help of the geometry plan, we were able to max lift the camera up to the ceiling so that more views were in the scene. Our 3D modeler started to create the 3D model. We use 3ds Max for this process.
At the same time, a plan with lighting locations were received. This greatly help our 3D artists locate each lighting at the accurate place. This in turn speed up the whole 3D modeling process.
As you see in the image, the 3D model includes partial materials. This is a draft that Paul and his team are able to check the materials in advance in an easier way. The next stage is to apply full materials and textures.
Stage 3: Materials, textures, and Lighting
When the scene was optimized and the partial materials were confirmed, our 3D artists proceeded with completing the full material and textures, and setting the lighting in. During this stage, Paul consistently offered his idea and comments on the colored drafts.
Stage 4: Post-Processing and Final Delivery
After the materials and lightings were all set, our 3D artists rendered the scenes and checked them carefully (our project manager was involved in this process as well). Throughout all stages, both the project manager and the 3D team worked together to guarantee the quality of the renders.

The 3D Interior Rendering Results
We created five renders for this bar:
We are happy to be part of this beautiful project. We have to say the whole 3D rendering process was smooth and efficient. Both Paul’s and our team dedicated in this project to make it bloom. Of course, we are eager to create more 3D renderings for Paul’s interior projects.
