If you are in Florida and looking for a reliable 3D rendering service provider, you can have a look at these five projects in Florida. We believe they will give you a first impression about how 3D renders look like in the area. And also get to know the project types in Florida and how they are made.
The Sunshine State Florida spreads a welcoming blanket of white beaches and tropical warmth for all locals and visitors. It also provides a comfortable blend of the classic and cosmopolitan. Architecture in Florida is versatile in style. And in this article, we’d also like to introduce five architecture in various styles. We hope these projects could provide inspiration for you. Check them out!
Hillcrest Surfside is a 10-story residential apartment siting on the Surfside Beach. In this project, the structure and the building next to it – Surfside Seaway – need to be included in the images at the same time. For the season that they belong to the same owner, this time, we needed to create 3D renderings that went along the lighting, materials and mood with the adjacent building.
Challenging task for “AER In The District” project in Tampa, Florida. Clad in smooth stucco, this façade is joined by vertical rows of stacked balconies and floor-to-ceiling glass windows. To present this amazing façade design, we carefully added different materials and made sure the result looked perfectly harmonious at the same time.
For the interior views, we build the 3D model from the scratch based on the hand sketches from the designers. Our 3D renderings show various faces of the structure, providing a glimpse into what it’s like to live and work in this mixed-use.
In this project, we used photo-composition for the best veracity of surrounding environment. Located at the Biscayne Bay, Miami, 710 Edge Tower is a 55-story ultra-luxury mixed-use building featuring 70 residential units and more than 16,000 square feet of commercial and retail spaces. Our client used these images to report to Miami city and got it approved.
Our visuals focus on its unique fluid curves and its distinctive exoskeleton exterior design. At the same time, we highlighted the concrete framing structure with proper materials such as dark tinted laminated glass and dark grey anodized aluminum. Finally, we set the lighting based on the site photos and adjusted them to make them consistent.
Situated in Tampa, Florida, the various plans are the spotlight of the project. Being one of the merits of architectural visualization, our 3D renderings demonstrate six different designs for this project in a short turnaround time. Because this adjacent building belongs to the same owner, this structure need to match it in all aspects, such as glazing, mullions, parking slabs, columns and vegetation.
Located on the river near downtown Miami, the Riverside Wharf, will be a hospitality-driven entertainment complex and is scheduled to open to the public in 2025. Our client used our 3D renderings to report and get this project approved.
By using the CAD files provided by the client, we created the perfect 3D renderings that visual the unbuilt. Despite the tight schedule and unexpected design change, we successfully complete this project within the timeframe.
All above projects are located in Florida and our 3D renders helped architects and designers demonstrate their vision. No matter to boost the marketing or excite the reporting, 3D rendering services can help. We hope these case studies can prove our expertise and professionalism in providing 3D architectural visualization services.

Our client Leo from O-Lifestyle brought us this new exciting project on Aegina Island, Greece. It is a luxury club and hotel providing the opportunity to escape the normality of reality. At the same time, it is a redevelopment of an area where the hills underwent a forest fire a couple of years ago.
The old site.
This time, we built a 3D model from the scratch and created 3D renderings, and the result turned to be satisfying. In this case study, we described the whole process step by step, so that you can have a clear perspective of an architectural visualization project. Let’s check it out!
Leo was looking at different types of 3D visuals: 3D rendering and 3D floor plan. To specify:
An aerial view of the harbor, demonstrating the masterplan of this resort;
An interior view of the room, which gives a clear view of the hotel accommodation;
An exterior view of the hotel, which is a close-up view showing the details of the hotel environment;
A 3D floor plan to showcase the layout of the room.
Building the 3D Model
Leo summarized the references for the buildings and shared the masterplan, and we needed to build the 3D model based on these information.
According to the masterplan details, we knew the following:
There are two rows of suits, and they are identical;
The recreation area sits behind one of the suits, including brasserie, sky lounge, lobby, SPA & wellness, and linear pools;
There is a lagoon with sand beach and waterfall;
Facing the sea, there is a beach all-day restaurant club;
Along the beach, there is a yacht floating docks and a yacht owners decked pathway & seating area.
After studying the above references, our 3D specialists built the model using 3ds Max, and it looked like this:
The aerial view & close-up view of the model.
Exterior & Interior 3D Renderings
First, let’s get clear of what we were looking at. The exteriors of the project consists of two views: an aerial and a close-up view. As to the workload, aka the time needed for each view, the aerial view took longer than the other one.
The Aerial View
To demonstrate 100% of the original site, Leo sent us some drone photos for photo-composition for the aerial view.
Part of the site photos.
The landscape plan.
After discussion, we decided to go with the camera angle facing the sea. In the rendering draft, we particularly:
Embellish and add greenery to make a natural look of the barren hill because of fire;
Adjust the lighting according to the original photo;
Added materials and textures and make sure they are consistent with the tone of the original photo.
It didn’t take too long when we received Leo’s comment on the first round draft. As you can see, Leo gave us some comments on the placement of yachts and other minor adjustments.
Comments from Leo’s team.
Our 3D artists revised each details as in the comments. Here is the final result.
Leo loved the way we processed the hills behind. This aerial view is done.
The Hotel – Interior & Exterior View
Using the 3D model we’ve built, Leo pointed out two views he wanted: an interior view and an exterior close-up view.
Now, let’s have a look at the references Leo shared. In the references, our 3D artists were able to have a clear idea of the furniture plan and material board. This greatly helped the production process.
The process strictly followed the 3D rendering process: 3D modeling – material, texture & lighting – rendering & postproduction. After a couple of rounds of minor adjustments, the final images were complete.
3D Floor Plan
Floor plans are an essential part of real estate, and 3D ones give the viewers a true feel for the look and layout of a space. This time, Leo was looking for a 3D floor plan.
According to the floor plan of the units, our 3D artists built the 3D floor plan and fit the proper furniture in different spaces.
The floor plan.
By adding realistic material and texture, also recreating the beach and sea, the 3D specialists created the first round draft:
Leo’s team came back with their comments rapidly. This time, the comments particularly focused on the bathroom:
Change the glass around the shower to a more vivid color;
Add a shower head inside the shower;
Swap the positions between the shower & the sinks-counter set, and adjust the size of each correspondingly.
As a result, we’ve fixed these issues in one day and delivered the final 3D floor plan!
The Final Results
Let’s show you the final renderings together. We’ve delivered them in 4K resolution as we promised. We believe once this resort is complete, it will be a memorable place for its visitors to enjoy unique holidays.
This resort & beach club is planning to open to public on 2023. Our renders are now on their website for marketing. We are honored to create 3D works for this project. Leo and his team is very nice and well-organized, and we’re more than glad to hear that they’re satisfied with our service. Our team hope to work with them in the near future.
