Shiyaz, a renowned architect in the Maldives, and the founder of Shiyarch, approached us with a unique project vision. He sought to showcase his architectural expertise through a series of meticulously crafted photo-realistic renderings, designed to serve as the iconography of his work.
Adding to the complexity of the project, Shiyaz’s involvement extended beyond architecture. As the owner of Kumpel, a furniture design and manufacturing firm, he expressed his intention to incorporate exclusively Kumpel furniture into his Maldives restaurant project. This collaboration presented us with a fascinating opportunity to merge architectural and furniture design seamlessly.
Shiyaz was instrumental in articulating his expectations for the project. He provided detailed guidance on the specific detailing he envisioned for the four interior views, as well as an exterior view. His input extended to every aspect, from materials to color themes, each bearing a unique style and precise specifications.
This collaborative effort between Shiyarch and Kumpel promised to result in a truly exceptional project, where the artistry of architecture and furniture design would converge to create an exquisite dining experience in the Maldives.
Shiyaz and his dedicated team provided us with a wealth of references to guide our project. These references predominantly consisted of meticulously prepared plans and elevations, offering precise angles of views complete with dimensions. Additionally, they thoughtfully shared mood boards that not only showcased the intended furniture placement but also highlighted the carefully chosen color schemes, intricate patterns, and textures, enhancing our understanding of the project’s visual aesthetics.
Furthermore, the team maintained a structured and systematic approach throughout the collaboration. Whenever adjustments or modifications were required, they promptly communicated these changes through clear and organized drawings, ensuring that every aspect of the project was meticulously documented and accounted for. This level of detail and communication greatly facilitated the successful execution of our tasks
1. Architectural Blueprints and Elevations
Our collaboration commenced with the provision of comprehensive 2D floor plans and elevations, meticulously designed to elucidate the spatial proportions within the project. These drawings ingeniously outlined the strategic placement of furniture and appliances. Moreover, they thoughtfully included structural elements, precise dimensions, and material specifications, offering us a holistic understanding of the project’s architectural framework.
2. Comprehensive Mood Board with Product and Material Specifications
The mood board thoughtfully presented an extensive guide to the project’s design elements. It featured a detailed breakdown of the Jaali patterns, hardscape, softscape, and vegetation, providing us with clear insights into the project’s aesthetic direction. Additionally, the mood board elucidated the prescribed color schemes and textures, specifying their application to individual pieces of furniture. This comprehensive reference served as a valuable source of inspiration and direction throughout the project.
3. Inspiring Reference Images for Atmosphere
Given the project’s tropical locale in the Maldives, where sunny weather prevails, we curated a selection of reference images. These visuals were carefully chosen to convey the vibrant ambiance of the location. They served as a source of inspiration for our 3D artist, providing valuable insights into the intended atmosphere that we aimed to capture in our renderings.
4. Model Snapshots for Client Approval
Subsequently, our talented artist shared meticulously detailed model snapshots, aligning with the specific client requirements. This step allowed the client to actively participate in the process, facilitating the approval of the project’s geometry and the selection of optimal viewing angles. It also provided the opportunity to ensure that all furniture details and placements aligned seamlessly with the client’s expectations, resulting in a collaborative and client-centric approach to the project.
5. Iterative Refinements for Quality Assurance
In our pursuit of maintaining the highest quality standards in our renders, the revision phase played a pivotal role. During this critical stage, we meticulously reevaluated the client’s requirements alongside all the provided data.
Remarkably, the client’s approval of the model was a testament to our dedication to precision. However, in the spirit of continuous improvement and attentiveness to the client’s vision, a minor adjustment was requested. Specifically, the client sought to enhance the sea-facing view by opening the windows on the right side of the design. This revision was seamlessly integrated to ensure the final renders met both our company’s exacting standards and the client’s expectations.
6. Revised Renders with Meticulous Attention to Detail
With all the materials and textures meticulously integrated into the model, as per the client’s exacting specifications, our next step involved a thorough scrutiny of the project. We followed a systematic checklist, assessing each detail in a step-by-step fashion for every render.
These comprehensive reviews ensured that all the recent updates and alterations were seamlessly incorporated into the renders. We left no stone unturned in our pursuit of perfection, meticulously addressing each element and requirement. Finally, once these meticulous checks were completed and validated, we proceeded to prepare the final renders, guaranteeing that they met both our stringent quality standards and the client’s precise vision.
6. Finalized Renders: The Culmination of Precision
As the ultimate stage of our project journey, we harmoniously incorporated all the client-driven refinements and modifications. This meticulous attention to detail culminated in the production of final renders, each boasting a Full HD resolution. Every aspect was thoughtfully considered, aligning perfectly with the client’s specifications regarding materials, textures, and the prescribed color scheme.
Following this intensive rendering process, a thorough post-production phase ensured that every render met our uncompromising quality standards. Upon successful validation during this crucial step, the renderings were officially approved as the definitive, polished final render set to be presented to the client.
Regardless of the intricacy involved, our work not only met but consistently exceeded our company’s exacting standards, leaving us profoundly content with the final outcome.
