What is an Architectural Rendering?

An Architectural Rendering is the result of the process of taking 2D Cad drawings, creating a 3D computer model, applying textures and lighting, and specifying a view. The resulting 'picture' of the view is the rendering. Often additional details are added after the rendering, such as people and some objects.

What kinds of Architectural Renderings do 88renders create?

88renders produce architectural renderings for a variety of residential and commercial project types. For residential projects we produce interior renderings of kitchens, bathrooms, living rooms, etc. Our residential experience includes everything from a single detached family house to large-scale apartment building developments. We produce renderings for commercial developments including: hotels, retail developments, office towers, industrial parks, etc. We also produce Master-plan renderings for larger scale developments like resorts, residential communities, and other urban plans.

What’s in a rendering?

  1. The rendering process starts with a 2d cad drawing. The client can either supply us with PDF’s or preferably DWG AutoCAD drawings.
  2. The plans and elevations taken from these drawings are imported into 3D Studio Max (3D modelling and rendering software).
  3. A 3D model is built (only the parts of the building visible in the rendering will be modelled).
  4. Materials, colours and textures are applied to the model’s surfaces.
  5. Lighting is applied. Interior models use the lighting specified in the ceiling plan. Exterior models use a variety of spot and global lighting.
  6. An initial rendering is now produced.
  7. Final touches are applied using Photoshop, before the rendering is finished and submitted to the client.
  8. The client can then request any changes.

What makes the 88renders service unique?

88renders is made up of a committed team of designers operating as an offshoot of an international architecture and design business. Our staff has many years of experience managing architectural rendering projects as part of our architecture practice. Having a base in Shanghai allows us keep our costs down while giving us access to an amazing pool of rendering and modelling talent.

Why use Architectural Renderings?

Architectural renders are used for 2 main purposes: as marketing collateral in advertising campaigns (i.e. roadside billboards, real-estate magazines), also to pitch designs to clients and get approval from authorities.
