We create immersive 3D virtual reality experiences to envision the future of places.

Using the latest innovative technologies, we meticulously compose high quality 3D visualisations that capture and enhance the project vision and place experience. This approach creates a realistic visual output that excites and engages community, effectively communicating and delivering your vision of the future.

Feature Projects

Surf Lakes Virtual Worlds

Australia & International

Surf Lakes uses state-of-the-art technology to create the best artificial waves in the world.

As part of a collaborative approach, the team re-imagined the design concept into three distinct virtual worlds to create an immersive user experience through 3D virtual reality, 3D visualisations & motion graphics.

Rivermakers Brisbane

Brisbane, Australia

Delivering a forward-thinking vision for inner city destinations which feature 270m of prime riverfront, a unique Heritage Quarter and 23 Ha of land for mixed industry and business.

The Rivermakers Master Plan is a pivotal project expressing a vision for a new type of business + industrial precinct emerging on the edge of Brisbane’s inner suburbs. The team elevated the visualisations by creating immersive 3D virtual reality that capture the precinct experience.

Orchard Hills North

Sydney, Australia

Orchard Hills North will be
a residential community set
amongst rolling hills in the rich natural landscape of Western Sydney and offering panoramic views to the Blue Mountains and surrounding areas.

We prepared an open space strategy to support the planning proposal and provides a holistic vision for open space provision totalling over 15 hectares. The team then developed a series of three 3D virtual reality images that highlighted the visualisation of the open space areas.
