3D Community Development Walkthrough
Walk Through a 3D Community Development to see a Future Real World Location with the Looking Glass Platform.
VR Walk Through Project Overview
Another Reality Studio created an online virtual walkthrough for a 3D community development by utilizing the Looking Glass Platform. Use the mouse and arrow keys to move from a virtual home through a community park.
View future landscapes to experience the size of the green space with geo specific topography in the background. Unlimited high resolution renderings available with the click of a button, precise measurement in real time, and redlining for comments. Users have a photorealistic view throughout the walkthrough

- Manage all stakeholders and approval processes. Colleagues can be notified of changes and begin drafting the redlines made, all while the Looking Glass developers are revising the visualizations in tandem
VR Walk Through Challenges and Core Considerations
Client operations required 3D visualization of the future space during multi-discipline design review for better understanding of the space to catch issues. The client marketing team needed a way to showcase the future development at a community development show with a virtual reality walkthrough of the future homes.
Impact: The ARS Solution
The ARS solution allowed the client to “move around the room” during design review to understand potential issues, toggle material selections, and find design discrepancies.
Change orders were reduced before the final build, saving the client time and money. Potential home owners were blown away by walking through the future space at the community developer show. The VR option assisted with the client selling process.
