The following case study is an example
that can be part of a bigger project. This example is one of four
plan variations found on the Monet housing estate of 120 houses.
As an immersive, real-time, virtual tour, this is one of the best examples of a
fully shaded house which is almost as good as the images displayed below (no
reflections for example). Includes animations.
The Dahlia is one of four plans in
three different styles; Tudor, French and Spanish. The Dahlia is a Tudor
style and has been constructed to exact specification in terms of colour
and furnishings. All rooms have been furnished and can be
explored from every angle with the virtual tour below.
