VR Roof Garden
Tour a proposed roof garden with VR
During the COVID-19 pandemic, Mahan led the Meshki's team in partnering with a technology company based in the Middle East to design a multi-use space on the roof of their headquarters building. The space was meant to address the need for a safe space that allowed for social distancing during the pandemic while also serving as an excellent place for business. The final design was presented through an innovative, cost-effective virtual reality (VR) walkthrough with the client, allowing them to experience the look and feel of the space before construction.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, companies were faced with immense challenges when it came to creating spaces for their employees, customers, and partners to interact safely with one another. In 2020, a client in the Middle East’s booming tech space approached Meshki intending to utilize the rooftop of its headquarters as a multi-purpose communal environment for company use. Mahan led the team to consider the special limitations of the space to design a beautiful, functional space that also met all necessary social distancing and other safety requirements.
After a careful exploration of the proposed area, Mahan worked with the environmental team to design a carefully thought-out floor plan. This design had to keep in mind several unmovable elements in the space that had to be designed around, as well as other external factors such as air and noise pollution caused by Tehran’s bustling streets below. The team was able to successfully design a functional, easy-to-navigate, and aesthetically pleasing floor plan that would accommodate all of the social and business activities that the client aimed to conduct in this multi-purpose space.
The team presented a comprehensive VR walkthrough of the proposed space to the client, far exceeding their expectations. The VR proposal not only depicted a clear vision for this unutilized space but also met all COVID-19 social distancing requirements that were in place at the time of the proposal, illustrating the power of VR presentation capabilities in the pre-construction process.
