Clay Renderings


Everyone wants a happy client. And when you’re designing their dream home, that means you need to be on the same page.

No one wants trouble when 2D plans turn into wood and steel in the real world. Unfortunately, this is often when miscommunication becomes evident. Suddenly the roofline isn’t quite what they had pictured, or they aren’t sure if those are the perfect windows….the list goes on. A clay rendering eliminates a whole lot of those problems. You send us the plans and we’ll show you a clean and crisp 3D model of the building without the distraction of finishes. The design is all you see, and it’s suddenly crystal clear if your client is happy with it.


Some people call them greyscale or cardboard renders. We usually call them clay renderings. Whatever you call them, they are a cost-effective way to show the basic structures of your building when you’re still in the design phase. They are faster for our team to create than photoreal renderings, and changes manipulated digitally at this stage end up saving you money and frustration in the long run. Some of our clients will only need a clay model, but for those who want to add materials to the building, we’ve already done the base work!

When you need to make sure you’re speaking the same language as your client, you need to show them your design in 3D. Call or email for a free consultation. We can help!
