Soluis Group Used VR to Design & Demo Radisson’s New RED Hotel

(Cadalyst)  Soluis Group, an architecture visualization company based in Scotland, narrowed the gap between their Radisson client’s expectations and reality by using Epic Games’ Unreal Engine and VR solutions. Augmented and virtual reality (AR and VR) can make viewing renderings a more immersive and realistic experience. The Soluis team uses “anything and everything” available — from the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and Microsoft HoloLens to their own custom-designed immersive viewing solutions.
Soluis collaborated with Glasgow design studio Graven Images to create renderings of the first Radisson RED hotel for Carlson Rezidor. The Soluis team found that CAVE-type VR viewing environments, which project content onto three or more walls of a cube-shaped room, were too boxy. So they developed their own solution: an “immersive dome.” The hemispherical, concave, full-height viewer provides a 180 degree view, accommodates multiple people at once, and allows participants to see designs at full 1-to-1 scale.
