Interactive models

Models

Real estate, construction and architecture are closely related. So much so that none of the three would function properly if one of the others failed. All three disciplines are part of the process of designing, constructing and selling buildings and homes. And, moreover, in any of the phases of an architectural project we find the same tool: the architectural model. Although, yes, in different modalities.

While architects use models to generate a global vision of the building, construction companies focus on a more detailed prototype. Likewise, property developers work with detailed models, as close to reality as possible. At Maquetas.tech we are specialists in the latter. We build realistic architectural models and we cover all kinds of needs.

We manufacture all types of architectural models

Models for real estate development
In this aspect, the model plays the role of a marketing and sales tool. They are the perfect object to show the final client the result of a work that is not yet finished or that is in another city. Although technology is advancing and there is the possibility of virtual visits or even “entering” the property through virtual reality, models continue to be a strong tool. The client still likes to have a physical model that he can examine from all angles.

In these models it is very important to keep the scale proportions as good as possible. A plus of realism is needed to fully convince the end user of the house. The furniture and even the lighting will be placed on these models. Every detail will make the difference compared to another development. Thus, the types of buildings that are represented in the real estate models are single-family houses, flat blocks or even housing estates. And the scale ranges from 1:20 to 1:50.

One of the strengths of our model workshop is that we put ourselves in the shoes of the end customer. That is why we develop prototypes of mobile plants. So that the user can have a much more accurate view of the entire building and examine each of its parts.

Masterplan models

A Masterplan project is much more complex than a housing project. In real space, its scale is larger and the model has to show everything. Masterplan models are represented in a wide variety of scales, but usually scales between 1:100 and 1:500 are chosen, depending on the size of the actual project. In the case of large projects, constructions such as large shopping centres, hotel complexes, large housing developments… are reproduced.
While in the models of real estate developments only the building is taken into account, in Masterplan models the surroundings must also be taken into account. That is to say, in addition to representing all the buildings that form part of the project, attention must also be paid to their surroundings. With these prototypes, both the urban plan and the land where it is located are studied. For this reason, the elaboration of the model becomes more complex, as it is also necessary to show the possible unevenness of the terrain where the building is or will be located.

In this way, Masterplan models have two main functions. The first is to convince investors in the construction industry to start the project. And the second is to show the end customer, the user of the homes or businesses, a bird’s eye view of the building and the area.

Interactive architecture model
Technology is advancing in all sectors and for architecture it has become a great ally. At real estate fairs and congresses, virtual solutions are increasingly being used to present buildings. Virtual reality and computer graphics are the latest in today’s market. However, many companies make the mistake of only using digital tools to present their work. The smart thing to do would be to combine the virtual with the physical.

In such a competitive environment, the most important thing is to stand out from the rest. Currently, the Spanish real estate market is resurgent, and with it, new ways of representing architecture. Innovation is one of the defining characteristics of Maquetas.tech, which is why we are also dedicated to making the most modern models.

The interactive architecture models are physically represented in three dimensions, but they also have all the information of the project in digital form. The advantages of these models are extensive: the model can speak for itself without the need for a loudspeaker, the infographics are integrated into it, the details of the interior are virtually captured?

The manufacture of the models themselves requires the use of new technologies such as 3D printers. In this case, scale and proportions are not strictly captured. It is more like a three-dimensional city map on which different information is projected.
