Rendering Process

Rendering Process

April 2022

Here is a rendering process from start to finish.

Clients may wish to utilise their own designers or have one of our preferred collaborators referred, however, this can be costly. Some clients may prefer to visualise their space with our rendering services. We can bring a space to life using a digital photo of the space with their outdoor flooring selections applied.

First we will meet with clients to discuss their initial thoughts for their project, typically in person to see the space. After a rough sketch is completed including the details mentioned to ensure all points are considered for the ideal final outcome. Using this draft and all of the details gathered, a “Mood Board” can be developed. This can be in the form of an email containing photos of past projects for inspiration and the discussion documented in a visual way. Designs and drawings will be based on the mood board and reviewed by production prior to approval and final sign off from the client. For the best final result to be realised, all elements of design will need to be previewed by production to ensure the project is feasible or there are no additional costs to installation services.

Once the client has approved the “Mood Board”, details such as tile choice, add ons (lights, planters, river rocks, turf) details can be finalised and confirmed with a formal quote. Then the client’s loves and likes can be transformed into a rendering provided by the design team. The team will need original photos of the space, reference photos of the tile chosen and the mood board for the clients. Including every detail will avoid extra drafts that take time and delay the installation so having all of the information confirmed will keep the process moving as quick as possible.

Having early conversations of the end vision could spark creative ideas for solutions, let’s make visions come to life and enjoy a revitalised outdoor space!

Rendering example:
The completed project:
(2×2 Ipe with Custom built Ipe planters and river rocks around some of the perimeter)

Here is another project that displays how we are able to take renderings and bring them to life!

Final result is seen below (the clients have postponed the completion of the outdoor kitchen, fire feature and plants). Installed was 2×2 Grey Steel porcelain paired with 1×4 Chocolate Walnut, in floor lighting and custom built Ipe wall with overhang:
Below is a first draft sent back by the design team:
Next edit that was sent to us. After viewing this, it was requested to have more of the other side included or an alternate view.
After letting the design team know our thoughts this came back:
There is now a view for each space. We gave the Ok and they proceeded to add colour.
Here is the finished outdoor flooring.

The following is a terrace that was sent to the design team. After sending a hand drawn draft back, this was approved and they proceeded to colour the image after being sent a picture of the 2×2 Grey Steel and the 1×4 Silver Cedar for colour reference. The final rendering was provided and sent to the client and approved.

Skyscapes Transformation and Design Process

“From Dreams to Drawings to Realities”
*Digital design of recent condo rooftop common area project

Skyscapes installed, pergolas, planters, railings and removable porcelain pavers.

Skyscapes started with discussing the clients design dreams

Skyscapes then creates a rendering to start to bring it to life

Skyscapes then makes it a reality by transforming the space

Recent Projects:

Tridel Aquabella Project → Toronto Waterfront
Sq/ft: 25000
Project scope: All of the balconies in the condo building units have traditional concrete finishes. Tridel Opted to upgrade every suite with our 1 by 2ft removable Porcelain Pavers. They provided a design and we matched the Rendering with a low profile decking that would stand the test of time, and heavy foot traffic.
