Soluis Group and Graven Images have teamed up to design a new hotel for Radisson RED, Carlson Rezidor’s new upscale lifestyle select brand inspired by the millennial lifestyle and fuelled by art, design, music and fashion. Designers at Graven Images developed sketches and initial design ideas, which Soluis Group then turned into 3D visualisations.
Traditionally, it could take several hours for each frame to render, making the design process – especially small tweaks to the lighting and materials – drawn out and cumbersome. However with Unreal Engine’s real-time capabilities, Soluis Group was able to visualise scenes and all changes live – effectively building a high-end, fully interactive virtual environment where clients could experiment with different elements live. Unreal’s real-time capabilities were invaluable to the client, allowing them to effectively walk through the hotel and truly experience what it will be.
The pictures and video tell the story – check out the remarkable video and before/after images to see how accurate the visualisations are to the final built spaces. In the video you’ll see the Soluis Immersive Reality Portal, running a number of projectors to create a visual experience that is wider than human field of view, immersing clients and giving them the shared experience of “walking through” the environment.
