By producing high-quality, photorealistic images and animations of the interior design, 3D rendering can be a valuable tool for expediting a project. You may hire a team or do it yourself quickly and effectively generate visuals that best highlight your design by building accurate and detailed 3D models and rendering them in a realistic manner. Let’s see how to speed up an interior project using Interior Rendering Services.
Z Residence is a luxury house in Tokyo, Japan. 2 kilometers from the Tokyo Tower, this three-story property is nestled next to the Arisugawa-no-miya Memorial Park. Tomo from SAAD is one of our friends in Japan, this time, he requested our 3D team to create 10 renders to show the majestic interior design.
Interior Rendering Process for Z Residence
#Stage 1: Briefing
As we mentioned millions of times, a good 3D rendering brief can be the accelerator of a project. To help the 3D team work fast and efficiently, we will take this project as a good example of how to provide a 3D rendering brief. Tomo, as we collaborated many times since 2016, is the expert in briefing. Here is the clear, concise brief with accurate and detailed information:
- A Rhino model. A basic model that has the spaces created. It needs further refinement.
- The elevations. Since it is an interior project, we don’t actually need information of the exterior design. However, understanding the whole picture is necessary to creating accurate interior images.
- Floorplans and Views. Tomo kindly marked the camera angles, aka the views, in the floor plans. We’ve got all floorplans for three floors, the basement, and the roof. In total, we needed to create 10 images, which are: one entry, two pool, four master room and ensuite, one kitchen, one living room, and one dining room.
- Material board. This material board outlines various materials as well as names and textures of different parts of the building, both exterior and interior.
- Furniture layout. Because the model has no furniture for most of the rooms, this file marks details of furniture including location, design, brand (if available), color, and reference images.
- Landscape plan. Since some of the views include outdoor scenes especially the garden, we’ve received the landscape plan for the garden. In this plan, the plantations are listed clearly with reference images.
After studying these files, our 3D modeler started to create the 3D models for this interior space.
#Stage 2: 3D Modeling
At AIMIR, we use 3ds Max to create 3D models for most of the times. A stunning 3D model is the key to make the work stand out.
The first thing we did was to input the Rhino model into the 3ds Max, sorting the lines, materials, and geometry, fine-tuning it. One of the key things to keep in mind in this step is to create with a clear picture of the whole project in mind. This will keep our 3D modeler stay focused on the aim.
This time, we paid great attention to the lighting and shading while creating accurate models. This is because proper lighting and shading are of great help for making models look realistic. For this luxury house with many large windows, we believe it is vital to use lighting and shading techniques. In the end, we shared ten views in the 3D model and Tomo was happy with them so that we could move forward to next stage.
#Stage 3: Applying Materials, Textures and Lighting
In order to create photorealistic scenes, our 3D artists firstly selected the materials and textures strictly based on the material board. At the meantime, set or adjust the lighting according to the scenes. Eventually, the colored drafts were completed and shared.
When we shared the colored drafts to Tomo, he replied back with comments. Especially, he wanted to:
- Change the finishes of marble walls, benchtops, cabinets to matt;
- Make the color of the glass darker;
- Change the color of the pendants;
- Add white appliances such as Miele microwave and oven.
In the meanwhile, we adjusted the drafts with the help of these comments. Soon, we moved to the next stage.
#Stage 4: Rendering and Post-production
In this stage, our 3D artists refined the scene to make it more realistic by rendering and post-production. During the process, the scenes were rendered in the rendering software and then added or adjusted the details in Photoshop. Furthermore, Tomo’s comments for the drafts are as below:
- Adjust the concrete wall texture;
- Add steel entrance door;
- Change a couple of décors such as the carpet and blanket.
After all of the comments were modified, we shared the drafts to Tomo. He approved them and loved the images a lot. To specify this process, our professional project manager and art director was involved. This is to guarantee the quality of the work as well as the efficiency of communication between clients and our 3D team. This is our Quality Control system, you can check this article here for more details on how we guarantee the quality.
#Stage 5: Final Delivery of High-res 3D Renders
We created ten interior 3D renderings for Z residence. Please enjoy this luxury house in Tokyo.
We have to say we really love this amazing house. Our team enjoyed working with Tomo and would like to work on more architectural visualization project together. What’s more, with the help of 3D interior renders, we believe this house is a welcoming home for its future owners.
