Top 5 Architectural Rendering companies worldwide

Best Architecture Visualization Service

For the past month or so I have been researching the best architectural rendering companies in the world, and have now edited down to a list of the Top 5 Architectural Visualization companies worldwide, plus a few Honourable Mentions. I understand that this is an entirely subjective affair, and the companies I have chosen are those that can make buildings, properties and interior rooms "sparkle and shine."

I hope to expand this post a bit next week, explaining what to me seem to be the strengths of each of these architectural visualization companies. Readers are invited to post alternative lists or additional suggestions in the Comments section below; we'll expand the Honourable Mentions list soon and hopefully have a Top Ten or Top Twenty list available by summer.

As I work as Director of Sales at DO HERE Digital, it would be unfair to rank the companies on this list, so I have presented them alphabetically. Here is the list of the 5 highest quality companies producing dramatic, elegant architectural renderings that can be used for zoning, permitting, marketing and sales:

ArchiForm3d

Cenario

DO HERE

Honourable Mentions:

  1. Windtunnel Visualization in New York also does fantastic 3D architectural renderings. We used their services on a number of projects. And their prices are usually half the price of these other firms.

    Here is their URL:

  2. All good with US/CANADA companies.

    What about big CHINA/SOUTH EAST ASIA companies operating in Europe?

    Crystal CG and many others...

  6. IMB,

    I cannot speak for the other companies on the list as most of the work we do at DHrendering.com / DoHere Digital is from Canadian clients, with some based in the USA.

    Animation costs in our markets will depend on length, complexity and resolution. Regular resolution for an architectural animation of 30 seconds could be $220 to $320 per second; a longer video may be less expensive per second.

    If you require high definition animation for large screen format, you'd probably be looking at a price at least several times higher.

  7. Hi there,

    Thanks for mentioning our name in your Top 5 list, Pixarch. Although you've got the images and name right, the link actually is www.pixarch.net, and not www.pixarch.com. Could you please fix that.

    Thanks,
