(NBC News) – Walking through the front doors of a building that doesn’t exist yet is being made possible through the eyes of virtual reality.
For design firm Interior Architects, it’s all part of the process now. Immersive models have replaced confusing blueprints and traditional 2-D mock ups.
“We use virtual reality as a design tool to help expedite schedule and ultimately saving costs for our clients,” says Douglas Gigi.
A more detailed picture of the final product allows clients to give specific feedback and see any changes in real time.
Right now, the technology is used mainly for commercial spaces, offices and luxury homes, but as virtual reality evolves experts see wider use in real estate, from digital home tours to remodeling projects.
