Virtual and augmented reality have transformed the technological landscape as we know it. Already so early in their life cycles, they have shaken up many industries in exciting ways, providing a means of experiencing digital spaces in life-like relief.

Uses in education, gaming, eCommerce and interior design are some of the most popular, but the architecture industry has been enhanced as well.

Virtual reality continues to make surges in industries you wouldn’t always expect. As more and more people become familiar with it and its benefits, businesses are looking for ways that they can utilise its features. Familiarity with virtual and augmented reality is at an all time high, with 78% of Americans said to be familiar with the technology. And with an expected market value of $209.2 Billion, VR is set to continue to shape the landscape of not only emerging industries, but also well established ones.

One of the best suited industries for VR is architecture. Thanks to its ability to transport the wearer of the headset to whatever reality it has been set to, people can witness builds before any foundations have been laid.


What’s possible with VR architecture?

See the evening sun light up your living space. Gaze out at the view through the kitchen window. This is the power that VR brings to contemporary architecture. At Marraum we have been using VR for some years now, finding it an invaluable tool within our design process.  

Director Adam says, “a VR architectural design is not only great for revealing our response to your brief; it’s also the ideal space for receiving feedback from you on any changes you’d like to see. You’ll be able to see a full virtual representation of the finished product as it stands, allowing you to offer any changes and further implementations to be made.”

Incorporating VR into the design process means architects are able to remove any uncertainties from your build. Experiencing the design with a precise perspective enables us to reveal all of the intricacies of the space in a way that clients and collaborators can understand. It’s a world away from 2D and even 3D architectural drawings.


Explore your build with our Virtual Reality experience

Here at Marraum, we are lucky enough to be able to offer our clients the brilliant experience of seeing their build in the virtual world, before construction has begun. Through the use of cutting-edge technology, our clients are able to immerse themselves in their new surroundings by simply putting on one of our headsets.
