Visiting built projects is another way we are both thankful and humbled by the work we do for clients. We are entrusted with bringing the project vision to life through our renderings and animations, sometimes years before the first bit of dirt is turned. As often as possible, we visit projects once completed to see how the vision came to fruition. Every project has an élan vital, whether it’s the materiality of the interiors, the entrance approach, or the site context – something is the designer’s intentional driving force, the heart of the building. We love to see how well we captured it! Here is a look at the vision vs. reality of two recent projects that got a lot of attention in our city, Buffalo Heights and Pearl Marketplace at Midtown, by developers Midway Companies and The Morgan Group respectively.
