#1. Winter’s Charm Meets Modern Design

Winter CGI For a Residence in Colorado Mountains

This winter 3D rendering was created for Narcis Tudor Architects firm. They needed it to demonstrate the design of a modern mansion in the Colorado mountains to their client. Working closely with the architect, our artist perfectly captured the mansion’s sleek design and its snow-covered surroundings. The outcome was a set of photorealistic visualizations combining the tranquility of the winter setting and the stunning aesthetics of modern architecture.

#2. A Rustic Retreat in the Woods

Cozy Barndominium 3D Render

We created this 3D rendering for a barndominium project in the wooded area of Kansas City. Here, the render’s magical winter setting amplifies the rustic charm of this cozy retreat.

The client asked for a rendering to be set in the early morning after fresh snow and wanted to include Christmas decorations. Following these requests, our 3D artist created an exterior visualization that presents the residence in the most charming and inviting way.

#3. The Magic of Christmas

These winter 3D renderings transport us directly into a scene reminiscent of a Christmas postcard. Here, our client, an architectural designer from the USA, planned to present their project during the holiday season. So it was essential to set the right mood in the visuals. Our team just loved working on this holiday-themed CGI! 

The exterior of the house is adorned with twinkling lights, wreaths, and a dusting of snow, instantly evoking a festive mood in a viewer. In the interior rendering, the holiday spirit unfolds even further. The room is full of thematic decor, from the beautiful Christmas tree to the figurines on the fireplace mantel. This project is a perfect demonstration of how seasonal marketing can work for architects and designers.

#4. Nordic Elegance

3D Rendering for Nordic Residence

Next on the list is an exterior visualization of a Nordic residence. The rendering introduces us to a scene where sleek modern architecture meets the ethereal beauty of a Swedish winter. Simple materials, clean lines, expansive windows, and a minimalistic facade blend with the surrounding landscape flawlessly. It’s worth mentioning that besides conveying the visual appeal of the house itself, the 3D artist did a fantastic job capturing the beauty of the harsh northern nature.

#5. Magnificent Ski Resort in the Alps

3D Rendering for a Ski Resort in Winter

This winter 3D rendering was commissioned to us by M-Rad, an architectural firm based in LA. They needed a visualization for their stunning project for the Devil Peak ski resort in the Italian Alps. 

The first thing in the rendering that captures viewers’ attention is the design of the chalets.  This hotel complex would be one of the few man-made structures on the trail, so the idea was for the buildings to seamlessly integrate with the natural surroundings. As you can see, our team has succeeded in accurately capturing the architect’s concept. 

Additionally, our client asked for an image of the resort in the summer setting. You can find it in our 3D visualization portfolio

#6. Cozy Warmth against the Winter Chill

Exterior CGI for Modern House in Winter

Here is a 3D rendering of a modern residence in the UK. This visualization paints a picture of simplicity and sophistication. The clean black lines of the architecture stand out in the snow-covered surroundings, with expansive glass walls allowing the light to flood out of the interior space. These transparent boundaries create a beautiful contrast between the coziness within the house and the wintry landscape outside. A Christmas tree in the middle of the living room adds a touch of festive charm to the rendering. All these details combined result in the accurate depiction of the design in the magical atmosphere of the winter holidays.

#7. Enchanting Real Estate in the Suburbs

3D Rendering for Holiday Real Estate Marketing

And last on our list is a festive winter 3D rendering of a suburban home. It was created for a holiday marketing campaign of a real estate agency. The visualization showcases the exterior in the evening with the sun beginning to set. This accentuates the tasteful Christmas decorations, resulting in the inviting atmosphere of the winter holidays. With the help of our talented 3D artists, this real estate rendering was transformed into a magical scene, perfect for seasonal marketing materials.
