Check out our new VR Portal

By | Architecture, Technology, Uncategorized, VR

A few months ago we launched the new VR page of our website. This is a new portal for clients to view and experience their projects in a way like never before.

With our virtual reality software training from 2017 + 2018 (via QLD government tech grant for small businesses) the Inaspace team have been pumping out 3d virtual models like no tomorrow. Much like the 90’s computer game the Sims, our clients are now able to walk through their project on their own computer to get an idea of what their project will look like before construction even begins.

The VR portal page now allows clients to have a password protected link to their model 24/7 and can share with any other consultants or people involved with the project.

The web standalone versions of our models can be run on any computer with a WebGL2 compatible browser (refer to our VR portal for further instructions on how to install WebGL2 – but put simply WebGL2 allows for real-time interactive 3D graphics in the web browser).

These online versions are a lower resolution which means they can be viewed quickly and easily regardless of computer specifications. Ultimately this means we can send to our clients to view and approve a design much quicker than we could before and they don’t require high end graphics cards to view it. It’s a convenient way for us to communicate with the client so they know exactly where the design is up to at any given time.

The limitations of the web standalone version means that it can’t be used with VR equipment to see it in full scale, nor does it have live updates to change out materials or furniture selections etc – though this can still be done in office and is very much encouraged to ensure the client is 100% happy with the design.

We are so stoked with how quickly our skills have grown and what we are able to offer our clients compared to 2 years ago. The investment in this technology has certainly paid off as you can’t beat being able to see a project to full scale and making material changes which is instantly reflected in the model for the client to see.

We are planning to look into the next level of VR with interactive audio and hopefully down the track the software allows for interactive animations. Looking forward to seeing what our projects look like in another 2 years but for now check out an example of walking through one of our recent projects.

Inaspace will soon offer virtual design services

By | Inaspace

Last week the Inaspace team ventured into the future and attended Autodesk’s Virtual Reality event to learn about tomorrow’s technology. “The future of making things” showed us the 50 year old history of VR and gave insight into what’s to come. The gaming industry has been the platform to push VR into the public eye of late but benefits have been widespread for many industries including media + entertainment, manufacturing and of course architecture + design.

It wasn’t long ago that we were only dreaming of augmented reality and last night’s event has shown how quickly this technology has advanced. We were thrilled to finally experience VR first hand (albeit with some graceful stumbles) and it has made us even more passionate about investing our time into learning these technologies.

With the recent purchase of our own VR equipment, it won’t be long until we can immerse ourselves in the office, walking through our own projects whilst wearing stylish hygienic masks and laughing at each other some more. We will also be offering our clients VR walk-throughs and belly laughs very soon.

KFC Park Ridge construction almost complete

By | Architecture, Inaspace

Another new build KFC we worked on last year is almost complete! KFC Park Ridge is due to open to the public tomorrow and we are very excited to see it come together! We were able to push the boundaries on this one and the builders have done a great job on the fit out so far! Here are some sneak peek images from site.

Brisbane south side residential design

The owners of this house are putting their own time and energy into it, opting to build a good chunk of the renovations themselves! We are so pleased with the progress of the pool, deck and roof. It’s all coming along nicely and we can’t wait to see the kitchen and living room completed next!

Would you like one of our new business cards?

Not the style you’d expect to see at the beach, but we’re very excited to have our Noosa house project in construction – here is a sneak peek render of what it will look like when it’s completed next year!

The ultimate list of must-see Melbourne cafes, bars and restaurants

By | Architecture, Inaspace, Interiors

When you have the opportunity to fly to Melbourne, you take full advantage and that’s exactly what we did. The team took a trip a couple of weeks ago to visit Denfair – a design trade event which was a massive room filled with different suppliers of furniture, lighting, homewares, upholstery + fabrics as well as a selection of artists. It was great to be introduced to new brands – local manufacturers and products that we don’t have in Brisbane. We had a wander around and then headed back into Melbourne to check out the new trends.

We had set a rough list of cafes, restaurants and bars to visit and managed to get through quite a few every day leaving some time for spontaneous finds.

The perfect foodie day would begin with waking up early enough to get a good spot in line at Lune on Rose ST in Fitzroy for an amazing croissant or cruffin – baked in a glass box within an old warehouse. While you are there you may as well hang around for lunch down the street at Transformer – a must do restaurant for vegetarians! The fit out was befitting of the food served – very green inspired! Head on into the CBD to Oliver Lane for dinner at Lucy Liu which serves up INCREDIBLE Asian food. you’ll find an overload of timber battens, red lights and an open kitchen which is still the Melbourne trend it seems. If you’re still hungry / have another day in Melbourne / want to swap out veggies for a meat marathon then Gazi restaurant on Exhibition St is the way to go! Get the lamb to share and you will leave a very happy human.

We also managed to squeeze in some shopping, a trip to the theatre where seeing Matilda the musical brought back some childhood nostalgia, and we snuck into a few hidden bars that involved entering through a concealed laneway door, a freezer door and also a special knock to enter.

Award winning bar in Brisbane CBD

Congrats to The Gresham bar on winning Bar of the Year! Well done boys! We are incredibly proud of your success.

We love a good heritage project, so we thoroughly enjoyed working on The Gresham a couple of years ago. This restaurant guide award is just another to add to the long list of awards they’ve already got under their belt. We highly recommend popping in for a drink next time you’re in the city.

Newly refurbished club in Redcliffe

By | Inaspace, Interiors

We are proud to have worked on The Redcliffe Leagues Club together with Paynter DixonGrayLightBaresque and Brintons Carpets and we’re all very happy with the results. Even better, the client is thrilled with what we pulled off. In fact, we’ve received positive feedback from the client, the client’s client and everyone else who collaborated on the project! If you’re in the area, be sure to visit the club and let us know what you think of the fit out.

New restaurant in Rosalie

By | Inaspace, Interiors

The Bounty Restaurant and Bar is Rosalie’s newest restaurant and bar with a beautiful seasonal menu and incredible fit out, if we do say so ourselves. Don’t take our word for it though, check out these photos of the space by the very talented architectural photographers at Camera Obscura.

Happy 12th birthday Inaspace!

By | Architecture, Inaspace, Interiors

It might be a bit late… but the 14th of May marked our 12 YEAR ANNIVERSARY! With 12 projects to tender and 4 renovation projects completed (just this year), I am sure we can be forgiven for the late celebrations! Thank you to all that have supported Inaspace and we are excited to bring you many more projects!!

Just post it!

By | Inaspace

The best way to get someone for April fools is to get them when they’re least expecting it…a whole week later! When asking the director what the caption should be, she replied “I don’t know, just POST IT!”  Lucky she has a great sense of humour!
