Animation, stills and 360 virtual tours: Our recent work

Wednesday 17th February, 2021

We are grateful that our services in animation, stills and 360 virtual tours have remained in demand during the Covid-19 pandemic, and we’ve had the pleasure of working with some fantastic clients over the past year.

We’ve delivered 3D virtual imagery for some amazing projects in sectors including student accommodation, residential and commercial property, hospitality and interior design.

Through 2020, we’ve even managed to grow our design studio team a little (welcome to Neal and Jordan!), and we have exciting plans for further expansion this year.

Read on for a summary of the schemes we’ve been working on recently.

Wellington Place, Leeds 

This major development to create a new urban quarter in the heart of Leeds is setting standards in the UK for its innovation in sustainable design.

Our work with Wellington Place goes back several years and in 2020 our focus was on creating CGIs for the amazing office and retail space at numbers 11 and 12. Find out more about the development here.

Fusion Students

VR has worked with university accommodation developer Fusion Students on a number of their schemes across various parts of the UK, including Cardiff, Sheffield and Swansea.

We provided 3D animation, still images and full 360 virtual tours of their stylish student apartments and their dedicated communal areas for study, leisure, fitness and wellness.

Raithwaite Village

This new village of 190 holiday villas, lodges and cottages is nestled within 100 acres of the Raithwaite estate near Sandsend, between the stunning North Yorkshire coast and the North York Moors.

The development, which will also include a café, restaurant, shops and art gallery, has been sensitively designed to have a minimal impact on the beautiful countryside around it.

We created a series of exterior still images for the launch earlier this year and are really looking forward to getting stuck into the scheme’s future stages.

The Grand Hotel, Birmingham

After nearly 20 years of decay, The Grand Hotel has been given a new lease of life following a £45m project to bring it back into use.

We were privileged to be part of this fantastic scheme, creating a series of CGIs right along the design process to showcase the beauty, elegance and detail of the refurbished building.

The Grand was once the go-to venue for the rich and famous and, with the completion last year of this major project, it has certainly regained the luxury and elegance of its heyday. We can’t wait to visit!

Residential schemes

We’ve also been creating 360 virtual tours for various residential schemes across the UK. Virtual tours are a great way to showcase your unbuilt development and are invaluable in helping off-plan and pre-show home sales.

Robert Angell Design International

It’s always a pleasure to create 3D interior visualisations for our long-term client Robert Angell, and we were delighted to see that they’ve had an amazing run of awards recently for some of their stunning schemes. This has included three wins at the Restaurant and Bar Design Awards and one at the International Hotel and Property Awards.

Property designer and developer Dandara is a long-standing client and we’ve been working with them on some exciting schemes over the past year. As experts in 3D architectural visualisation, our team has created high-quality CGIs for a range of Dandara’s commercial, mixed-use and residential projects, showcasing them through a series of still imagery and 360 virtual tours.
