Our 3D Interior Visualisation method aims to set order and cut production times of each project. By having in place, a strict management process that allows us flexibility, high-quality visualisations and at the same time secures our market competitiveness directly takes time and doesn’t happen overnight. Took years of hard work and sleepless nights to adjust the right all processes which will allow us continuous work-flow.
Close collaboration with our Interior Design clients and partners sits across the system and assures that we are in constant elaboration.
We appreciate productive criticism as this allows us to evolve.
Below I will explain the fundamental steps for achieving high-quality 3D visualisation that each Interior Visualisation project must have.
Step One to achiving high-quality 3D visualisations: Initial Brief meeting
We are not one of the many Visualisation companies or freelancers that get DWG’s and turn them into 3D models and visuals on the base – point and shoot. TALLBOX has a eleven-years of invaluable experience in Interior Design and Build sector.
That is the reason that we always start with an Initial Brief meeting.
That meeting will lay the foundation of each project. We start by setting the agenda of these thirty or sixty minutes. Often meetings are virtual (skype, facetime or other) as we value our partner’s time.
We will discuss and research:
- general information about the project
- problems that may occur
- sketches / possible ideas that your design team have
- time constraints
- budget constraints
After all, information is gathered, we’ll discuss a possible 3D Interior Visualisation strategy. Which after the meeting, we will provide in full writing (e-mail) in 12 to 24 hours.
Step two to achieving high-quality 3D visualisations : File exchange
This is the time when we should receive full sets:
- DWG’s: Floor plans, Construction, Ceiling plans, Furniture
- Design sketches: Hand sketches, Sketchup or Photoshop collages
- Specification lists
- Photos of current conditions
- References: Mood boards or Reference photos
Anything that will be helpful for us to use for the 3D interior visualisation.
Don’t worry; we provide a list of those required.
The experience shows that not all projects are at an equal stage where all documents are present. Some of the architectural visualisation projects we work on are at Mood board stage or pitching stage while other comes as a complete package of documentation.
Luckily our system allows us to start and finish almost every project at every stage.
It is not a rare occasion where we support with interior design assistance to finish the project by communicating directly with the end client on our partner’s behalf.
Step Three to achieving high-quality 3D visualisations : Building-up the 3D models and views
It’s not an exciting stage for you but is important to set up the base of the project.
- perspectives and views
- the boundaries of the model
- structure – walls, floors, ceiling, openings
This is where we check if there are any mistakes in translating from 2D to 3D.
These types of images we refer as Clay renderings.
By going through this stage, we solve all solids and volumes. You should not expect to see any details or materials, yet. The purpose here is to clear out all hanging related to space only.
Usually, we don’t advise showing these images to end-clients if the layout is agreed. On occasions where the project is not further down the design stage, and the layout is not sorted fully, we advise and insist on showing and discussing with the end-client.
Typical end-client questions you should expect to get:
Is this the 3D interior visualisation?
Where are my chair and table?
Can you show me other perspectives?
I can’t wait to see the coloured version of the 3d file!
Can we see a night version?
A lot of the questions might be directly relevant. The list does not stop here, but you get the sense of what should you expect.
We developed a custom solution that will answer most of the questions up front, which means – less hassle on your end.
Our 3D Interior Visualisation Interactive tool gives you unlimited possibilities to communicate your design ideas.
Voice messages, video, info. Boxes, light-boxes, URL integration, comment boxes (two-way interaction), website integration (yes, you can integrate this into your website) and many more options.
Our interior design partners loves this tool, as it saves of time back and fourth dealing with client questions.

Pre-design 3D visualisation stage
When all questions are answered we move to the next stage, which is fun – materials and textures.
Step Four to achieving high-quality 3D visualisations : Setting materials and textures
Pre-design Phase. That is the time where we need You to become the ultimate decision maker.
This magical moment where the white and empty clay renderings become comfortable spaces with texture, details and colours.
Those mood boards and specification sheets come in use here. We test and implement furniture, lights, soft furnishings, tiles, floors, wall colours – everything. When the internal areas are approved, we build the local environment in 3D or by 2D collages (if agreed).
Sadly, the Fun part is quite time-consuming for both sides. We would be asking for your opinion, sending draft visuals of the project.
We value your time, and this is the reason for our R & D module at the beginning of each 3D visualisation project.
With your help – together we will come up with a plan on the atmosphere and aesthetics of space.
Often we visualise even light studies to find out how the environment will interact with materials and light.
Interior 3D Visualisation Light Study
Our light studies are 95 per cent reflection of the reality, which means we take real values of all light fixtures, sun position and local environment in our calculations. Working with the lighting designer and expert helps us to determine what should be improved.
* Interior Visualisation Light Studies is an additional service which includes a third-party specialist
Step Five to achieving high-quality 3D visualisations : Project submission
Images will speak for themselves. At this point, it is likely your end client to be thrilled and excited about their project.
Once we finish with rendering and post-production we would provide you with all agreed Interior 3D Visuals at 300dpi. and 3K or 4K resolution.
At this point there shouldn’t be more changes or comments. But as we live in world where everything is possible, we provide the opportunity to amend what is picked up by you or your client. After evaluation from our side, we will come back with schedule for execution, details and terms.

Key points of Our 3D Interior Visualisation method for high-quality visualisations [explained]
- Starting with an initial brief meeting is an investment for the success by discussing general information and constraints about the project
- Sending over all the required files. You should receive from us a list of the needed data. If you don’t have files, we can help you make them with our interior design assistance service.
- That is the stage where we build/translate everything in 3D. A proven strategy that aims to pick all project errors before the pre-design phase.
- At the pre-design phase, everything starts to make sense — light, materials, colours, details. We test and implement furniture, lamps, soft furnishings, tiles, floors, wall colours – everything.
- Final submission. By that time you should be celebrating the success of the project and preparing for the next phase of your interior design project – construction and supervision.
