BUILDING A CITY FROM NOTHING

Our team was tasked with building the entire city of London in Virtual Reality for Architectural Visualization firm VIRTUOCITY. The mission, to showcase the view from a potential property overlooking the Thames, as if stepping out upon the balcony for the first time.

A painterly, magical realism look was crucial in enabling a sense of seeing the city through new eyes. Starting in complete darkness, the user pushes through giant Edwardian doors revealing central London and it’s iconic landmarks illuminated by the golden hour.
