Architectural Exterior Rendering is a brand-new tool for design presentations. Why would you need anything new if sketches and drawings are doing fine? Let’s see. It takes a lot of effort to present the advantages of a design – investors aren’t good at reading drawings, and it bores them. On top of it, there’s strong competition fighting for the same project, and the success depends on convincing skills more than ever. The mere thought that winning has more to do with the eloquence than with the obvious merits of an architectural masterpiece doesn’t make it any easier or fairer. Pity you cannot just take that beautiful picture that’s in your mind and show it to the investors… Wait. Actually, you can.

Did you know that there’s a tool that lets you capture the project of the future in the present?

Owing to the 3D Technologies, you can now benefits from Architectural Rendering Services. And the quality is just as good as that of a real photo! Which is why high-quality visualizations made for presentation purposes are called photoreal.

So, here’s the palette of opportunities you get with Exterior 3D rendering services – and with some good examples.

Architectural Exterior Rendering: 9 Types That Are Most Commonly Used

Type 1:  Commercial Building Rendering

Commercial Rendering has a whole plethora of options. Let’s take a look at the most popular ones.

#1. Exterior Rendering For A Skyscraper

The main task of the Architect here was to create an impactful modern design for a commercial center. It had to grab attention and associate any brand represented here with culture of the state-of-the-art and fun. So, the Architect created an exterior design that is a spectacle in itself.

Which is why he opted for the night view. It makes the project look so much more festive – with the lights twinkling, a colorful advertising shining and the oblique roof pointing right into the sky. The elegant geometry of lines creates a symmetrical composition that helps the building stand out among others.

Can you think of any other way to draw attention to this marvelous project better that an Architectural Exterior Rendering?

#2. Resort Hotel Exterior Rendering

Photoreal Architectural Exterior Rendering: A Green Resort

This stylish resort hotel looks like a house of future situated in paradise. Its reserved structure, absence of embellishments and natural materials fit in perfectly into the lush greeny around. The photoreal architectural exterior rendering you see reflects what the Architect wanted to emphasize: perfect harmony and a soothing tranquility. Practical simplicity, space and light reign in the rendering. Like it should be, the only luxurious thing in the rendering is the amazing forest around.

#3. Exterior Rendering For A Hotel Design

Photoreal Architectural Exterior Rendering: An Elegant Hotel At Night

Like in case of the Architectural Exterior Rendering for the skyscraper, our Client chose the night view. Yet the result is totally different. This hotel design is more conservative and is surrounded by similarly elegant buildings. The golden light it emanates suggests the active night life. But when you look at the paved street, you rather think of opera or Vienna balls than nightclubs or shopping. And the clientele of the hotel is wealthy, well-educated and culturally active – and can you think of a more fitting picture?

#4. Exterior Rendering For An Office Building

This Architectural exterior rendering for the office center looks imposing. Any company with a head office there would produce an advantageous impression on visitors.

To demonstrate all the benefits of the design, the Architect had 3 Views done: the front one, the back and the closeup to show the facade. Take a look at these Architectural Renders before you read on.

The front view looks impactful with its glass vestibule and the conference room. An original geometric composition of windows complements the sophisticated shape of the building.

The back view shows the parking space and delightfully elegant asymmetry of the architectural design. Meanwhile, the close view reveals carefully planned complexity of the structure which makes the building look like a spaceship.

Make sure your exterior design project takes your clients’ breath away

Type 2: Exterior Architectural Rendering For Residential Housing

#1. Single Family House Exterior Rendering

Photoreal Architectural Exterior Rendering: A Single Family House

If this exterior project could be characterized in three words, these would be simplicity, impact and practicality. The chosen angle highlights the sophistication of a seemingly simple shape. The color of the tiling matches the foliage of the trees and contrasts with the metal gray wall finishings. The fallen leaves, cold blue sky and the mist make the viewer think of a crisp autumn morning. Yet the smoke from the chimney suggests it’s warm and cozy inside. This Architectural Design Presentation creates quite an atmosphere!

In some ways, Architectural Exterior Rendering is a picture of a dream. Can the words evoke such a real image in the mind of an investor? We knew you’d say so!

#2. Exterior Rendering For A Multi-Family Residential Building

Quality Architectural Exterior Rendering For A Design Presentation

The extraordinary triangular shape of the building in the Architectural Exterior Rendering instantly catches the eye. The neighborhood looks wealthy and conservative, yet the super-modern house fits in perfectly. It complements the architecture of the street and has a mysterious futuresque look about it. The picture shows one of those sweet unremarkable days full of simple pleasures of life. It’s what everybody can refer to: autumn sunlight, green trees with a hint of orange, a tranquil walk home. And this takes place near the building – with it and because of it.

A fun riddle from the 3D Artist: look at the kite the girl is holding. Does its shape remind you of a certain house?..

#3. Architectural Rendering For Housing Units

Photoreal Architectural Exterior Rendering: A Residence For Four Families

This Exterior 3D rendering looks like a photo of a fairy-tale. The houses are beautifully differentiated by the facade finishes and shapes. The geometrical center of this complex is the red house consisting of two identical parts. It creates a pleasantly dizzying mirroring effect and contributes to the atmosphere of surreal. 3D Artist sensed it and reinforced with some colourful air balloons and a kite.

As a result, the Architectural Exterior Rendering conveys the message the Architect asked for: “This is not just a house. This is a story of a beautiful, balanced life where good miracles are a part of everyday”.

#4. Architectural Rendering For A Big Residence Design

This gorgeous house design project clearly deserves the best presentation there is. There are five views of the building, and each of them looks different. Whimsical combination of materials and shapes makes the facade literally unpredictable, and the panoramic windows are quite a spectacle.

Three terraces with plenty of greenery and comfortable dining area take the breath away. Especially when you consider the marvelous view on the coast they let see. Would you like to visit such a place? We certainly would.
