Visualhouse is a creative agency focused on creating compelling brand stories for architecture, design, and the built environment.
We work worldwide with leading architects, developers, designers and agencies on landmark projects. Each one is unique, and to each, we bring passion and expertise with our multidisciplinary creative teams skilled in 3D visualization, still imagery, film, and animation, as well as branding and interactive. Together these disciplines form a cohesive creative vision grounded in our client’s strategy and brief.
With a formal background in architecture, we deconstruct our clients’ wish lists and business objectives to find the most appropriate communication method to educate and engage target audiences. This enables our clients to win - whether their goal is a design competition, or to generate funding, gain planning permission, attract tenants and/or secure high levels of exposure.
