Capella partners with Andrew Lucas Studios to bring state-of-the-art virtual reality experiences to the world of design
We’re delighted to be working with Andrew Lucas Studios, a brand new London based design consultancy specialising in virtual and augmented reality designs. The startup is working with designers and architects to turn their visions into virtual reality for their clients.
One of the greatest design challenges when working with an architect or interior designer is making sure you’re both on the same page. By using the power of VR, Andrew Lucas Studios allows you to explore and edit your new surroundings before a brick has even been laid!
A key innovation in the Andrew Lucas Studios platform is the level of interactivity available within a virtual space. While immersed in a VR environment, users can change aspects such as floor tiles, wall coverings and furniture, experimenting with different styles and shapes to see what best suits the interior layout. Users can provide live feedback to designers and architects, who can re-design parts of the space, saving time and resources.
We’ve been working with Andrew Lucas Studios to launch the startup to market and introduce both trade, business and property media to the concept of VR in the design and architecture space. The sprint campaign has got off to a great start, with coverage secured on Guardian, Evening Standard and City AM, as well as a number of trade publications such as Building Talk, Virtual Reality News and Architects Datafile.
It’s an exciting technology and clever solution to an ever-present industry problem which we’re delighted to be involved in. Managing Director of Andrew Lucas Studios, Krystian Zajac believes that the second coming of virtual reality will effect a sea change in the way design professionals and property developers work with clients when devising space:
“Architects and other design professionals have long used 2D plans and 3D renders to bring their projects to life, but these only tell half of the story. Rather than standing outside the window peering in, virtual reality places you inside a space, allowing you to fully explore and edit it to your tastes. In the years to come, no home will be designed without customers stepping into a virtual version beforehand.”
