Zoom London Office Main
CASE STUDY 19: OFFICE RENDERING

Zoom London Office – Experience Center

Overview

Unispace, a leading company in construction and workplace strategy and design, has reached out to us to create 3D walkthrough and set of office visualizations for Zoom London Office and their ambitious project: Zoom’s Experience Center, located in Holborn, at the heart of London. This centre is over 18,000-square-foot  boasts a 125-foot Lens Wall and London’s first curved LED screen with multi-touch interactivity. Highlights include the Boardroom of the Future with a seamless curved 8K LED screen. The facility, designed with sustainability in mind, has earned Gold LEED certification, setting a new benchmark for modern workplaces in London.

Project's goals

The goal was to create highly detailed 3D visualizations for each phase of the development study. This involved ensuring alignment with the evolving project requirements, which necessitated continuous refinement and updates. These visualizations were crucial for conveying design concepts clearly and effectively to the management, facilitating smooth construction approval processes, and ensuring that the final design met all specified needs and expectations throughout the project’s lifecycle.

Process of creation

The entire project lasted for two years, during which we were deeply involved in both the initial project development and subsequent project amendments. Our primary responsibility was to create detailed 3D visualizations for each phase of the development study. These visualizations played a crucial role in conveying design concepts and proving the final look to the management for the construction approval throughout the project lifecycle. The nature of the project required us to continuously refine and update these visualizations to reflect changes and improvements, ensuring alignment with the evolving project requirements. When all renders were finalised, we created a breathtaking 3d walkthrough. Creating a 3D walkthrough for the office space using Unreal Engine 5 (UE5) involved several well-defined steps that leveraged the engine’s cutting-edge features. The process began with using architectural visualisations which we created earlier or alongside with designers. These images were then imported into Unreal Engine. A virtual environment was constructed from these designs.

Process
  • 01.
    Information Collection
    • Our first meeting with the client involved a comprehensive collection of necessary details. We reviewed the functional needs, design preferences, architectural plans, and any measurements to help us understand the client's unique goals. The thorough information collection aimed to tailor our work to our client's goals seamlessly.
  • 02.
    3D Modeling
    • We used one of the best 3D visualizer software and built precise 3D visualizations that incorporated every aspect of the space.
  • 03.
    Lighting and Texturing
    • This phase is always the best as it now brings the visuals to life, making the dream a reality. We applied the right textures and visuals that transformed the 3D model into amazing visuals of the client's space. We were keen on the textures and the lighting as the goal was to ensure the space felt ambient enough and the aesthetics appealing to potential users. The hues brought out warmth and a good mood.
  • 04.
    Realistic Views
    • The final 3D renders realistically depicted the architectural space. The visuals showcased the external features, which were functional and eye-catching. The 3D visualization project delivered what it was meant to deliver: high-quality architectural visualizations that captured how the space would feel and look. The visuals helped our client make several decisions.

Final Result

The 3D walkthrough allowed the client to explore and evaluate the office space virtually, demonstrating how UE5 could transform architectural visualization through its advanced real-time rendering capabilities. This immersive experience enabled Zoom London Office to achieve an engaging preview of their modern Experience Center, highlighting every detail and design choice as if they were physically present in the space. By leveraging UE5’s powerful tools, the walkthrough provided a comprehensive and interactive understanding of the layout, aesthetics, and functionality of the proposed office environment.
