Historical Windows of New York announced they are leading the architectural window and door industry by deploying virtual reality in their design process.
Partners Clai White and Andrew Grisafi see the future in the past. “Virtual reality immerses our clients in their projects in a transformative manner, taking them beyond the typical 3-D model,” says Grisafi. “We can take them back in time to see historic details restored, but in a futuristic way that hasn’t been done before,” White states.
Virtual reality allows architects and designers, developers, and other professionals in the building and construction sector to safely and efficiently explore conceptual options like exterior colors, window and door styles, glass types, and landmark profiles and projections. The concepts are easily presented to their customers using a virtual reality headset or video, streamlining the design process while fostering transparency, client trust, and social distancing. Building owners, interior designers, public agencies, and other stakeholders can better understand spatial and neighborhood impacts, improving engagement and approval process without the added time and expense of models and mock-ups.
“And virtual reality isn’t just for landmark projects either—Historical Windows is a leader in high performance window and door design, too,” remarks White. “With VR, homeowners and other clients will see how you don’t have to sacrifice aesthetics for energy efficiency,” says Grisafi.
