What is DMV Architecture’s preferred Lumion feature?

The River Retreat

We noticed that DMV Architecture use Lumion Video as a step in presenting your designs, why do you use this option?

“DMV Architecture prefer to incorporate Lumion walkthroughs when presenting a design for the first time to clients, to help the clients see how we as Architects have shaped their needs into spaces that are dynamic and functional. Our clients can then provide valid feedback and make comfortable decisions when deciding to move forward to construction by knowing what the built product will look like.”

How do clients respond when you present your Lumion renders?

“Our clients often don’t expect the quality of presentation or have even used us for this very reason. Its an added bonus for them to visualize their product.” Win win…
