A County Durham architecture practice is introducing advanced modelling to all client projects.

Rural Studio is bringing Building Information Modelling (BIM) processes to all projects, a tool that  creates buildings in 3-d with the bonus of providing visuals at every stage of the process.

The immersive aspect of this goes beyond the standard rendered visuals normally associated with architecture projects, creating image spheres which enable the viewer to look in any direction and to explore the space. These can be interacted with through a computer web browser, or extend to virtual reality through the use of a headset or simply using Google cardboard with an ordinary phone.

Rural Studio was launched when Robin Parsons, a RIBA Chartered Architect, identified a niche in the market to bring the advantage of this software to domestic clients and small to medium sized businesses.

Robin explains, “Creating immersive visuals should be an expected part of any design process regardless of project size or scope. Creating, reviews and revising accurate visuals is an integrated part of the way that we develop and communicate design intent.”

Immersive visuals are created in BIM Software to help clients understand the reality of their final projects with all measurements reflecting the ‘live’ building plans.  They generate 3-d visuals much like a computer games, something that most home-owners with any interest in computers will instantly recognise and understand.

Rural Studio Architecture delivers 3-d immersive visuals as part of standard services for all Residential services including self-builds, home remodelling, barn and farm conversion.

The practice is holding its first ‘Meet the Architect’ surgery event at Homer Hill farm on the mornings of 3rd and 4th December 2018.  If interested in booking a free 30 minute consultation please email hello@ruralstudio.co.uk to reserve a timeslot.
