This company is redesigning how it works with virtual reality

Interior construction company DIRTT (Doing It Right This Time) is using Oculus Rift headsets to show clients exactly what their banks, office buildings, and other projects look like before construction has even begun.

The company designed a wireless set-up that includes a backpack and Polhemus technology, which uses an alternating current magnetic field to track movement. Clients can walk around the room untethered and experience everything from the layout of the furniture to the location of the columns and windows.

“We allow the physical freedom to explore, and as part of that we’ve also integrated technology for motion tracking,” Barrie Loberg, CTO and co-founder, says. “When you physically walk forward, you walk forward in your virtual world. It’s an extremely compelling experience for the participant and it eliminates the motion sickness that’s common with VR because we’ve completely synchronized your physical motion with the virtual motion.”

DIRTT developed its ICE 3D design and specification software 10 years ago for 3D visual communication, and recently integrated VR into their custom set-up. The company, which generated $187 million for fiscal 2014, has seen its business increase while also saving clients time and money by offsetting expensive fixes before they physically occur.

Loberg points to a recent oil and gas project the company was working on, where the client’s design included a large column in their floorplan. They could see it in the plan view and in the renderings, but they weren’t sure if it was going to be a problem until they put on the HMDs. They unanimously agreed the column was in fact a big problem, and they changed their design.

“People need to form their intent and vision into a design, and they need to commit to purchasing that design so we can move forward,” Loberg says. “What VR does is take all of this to an entirely new level. With VR, you can feel the space! You are in the space, you are experiencing the space in a way that wasn’t possible before.”

DIRTT president Scott Jenkins credits video games for leading the wave of VR advances over the past few years. DIRTT built its ICE platform on video game technology and will soon be using consumer VR headsets designed for gaming to transform the interior construction industry.

“As soon as one of the VR units becomes commercially available, our plan is to send it to our entire distribution sales network so people around the world can experience VR with ICE and what it means for interior building,” Jenkins says. “We envision hundreds of people using it immediately within our network, and then ultimately growing to our end users. Ultimately, our VR experience will connect right to your computer in the way that a mouse connects today.”

Really great to work whit. Very professional.

Stella Ludwig worked with my wife and I setting up a family vacation apartment in Pereira (Colombia). We needed help with the last minute upgrades: tiling, flooring, lighting and furnishings for the entire place. She was instrumental in suggesting products that made the space look bigger and to keep it cool throughout the year’s hot climate as well as picking the right size and the right amount of furniture for the tiny space. We enjoyed working with Stella through Skype chats, emails and photos for a while and for three weeks when she flew in to finish the space. She gave us clear instructions and we followed her lead. We would have wasted money and time had we not hired her services. We have recommended her to family and friends and will hire her again in the future. Eliana y Ricardo Zapata Pereira(Risaralda) Colombia.

Extremely professional and great designer to work with

Nice. nice. no excellent Stella was the perfect designer for our kitchen remodel. Maximizing both our (my wife and myself) wishes and budget. Next she jumped into the living room and went above and beyond any of our expectations! Hey don’t stop Stella. After a short break she’s back working with my wife on the master bedroom and bathroom. I have so much confidence in her that I’m back to concentrating on my own daily schedule. With confidence i reccommd her to anyone that wants to improve their own living space. I have already decided that her next assignment will be the refinishing of my basement into my own personal man cave I plan to share with my five year old boy.

Bachelor of Interior Design: Online Degree

Bachelor’s Degree Programs in Interior Design

Online interior design programs can help students develop skills in creativity and graphic communication. Students also can strengthen their critical-thinking, conceptualization and spatial visualization abilities. Online interior design programs, such as a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Interior Design, are primarily offered through private, for-profit institutions.

Almost all programs stress some combination of an internship or professional practice and portfolio development toward the final years of study. Students should have an interest in traditional drawing and drafting, as well as in color theory and construction materials. Related certificate, associate’s and master’s degree programs also are available online.

Program Information and Requirements

Online bachelor’s degree programs in interior design generally take four years to complete. Most programs can be done fully online; however, students might need to complete an internship in person.

For an online interior design program, students need a broadband connection and a faster-than-average processor. Specialty software, such as Adobe Creative Suite, might be necessary for some classes. Some programs require additional hardware, such as a flatbed scanner or digital camera. Most schools offer books and software for online purchase.

Common Core Courses of Interior Design Programs

In addition to general education requirements, students might complete classes in both residential and commercial design principles. Most programs offer core and elective interior design courses similar to the following:

Computer-Aided Design

Students train in computer-aided design through a series of classes that build upon each other. Beginning with basic 3-D modeling, students progress through increasingly complicated renderings of interior environments.

Survey of Art, Architecture and Design

Programs tend to emphasize survey classes in architecture, design and art history, which provide students with a knowledge base for building their design aesthetic. Additionally, these classes afford students a point of reference for future clients’ specific design requests.

Color Theory

In color theory classes, students are taught how the interaction of shadow, color and light delineates a space. They also explore how color and mood relate, as well as how to utilize color to enhance a room’s function.

Materials

Materials classes train students in the fundamental building blocks of a space, including textiles, finishes, woods, stones and metals. Students learn how the function of a space typically determines the types of materials used within that space.

Career Information

Students with a bachelor’s degree in interior design might pursue careers with a design firm, an architectural firm or the design department of a corporation. Entry-level positions, such as design assistant or junior assistant, may be available to recent graduates.

As of May 2014, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported that the 45,010 interior designers employed nationally earned a median annual wage of $48,400 (www.bls.gov ). The BLS predicted that employment opportunities for these designers would grow by 13% between 2012 and 2022, job growth that’s about as fast as the average for all occupations.

Certification and Continuing Education Information

Some states mandate that interior designers be registered or licensed. This generally requires passage of the National Council for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ) Examination. Students must have a combination of six years of education and experience, including at least two years of formal education, to qualify for the exam. Interior designers who live in states that do not require registration or licensure can still take the NCIDQ exam to attain voluntary certification. Continuing education is generally required to maintain certification and/or licensure.

Interior designers who would like to progress to a master’s program in the field can find options both on campus and online. Graduate certificate programs also are available.

What to Know About Virtual Interior Design

When you work with an online, or virtual, interior designer, you’ll typically receive a custom room design, a loyout and space plan, recommendations for furniture and decore and a concept board, much like this one from Room Design Online.

After making many decisions about your new home, the idea of furnishing and decorating it may seem like a daunting task.

Most folks think there are only two options to interior design — do it themselves or hire an interior designer. But many don’t realize there’s a third option: go online for virtual interior design.

For Georgia homebuyer Christi Yeager, working with a professional was an obvious choice. Having worked with an interior designer on a former home, Yeager opted for professional help with decisions such as space planning and ensuring her finished home would match how she and her family lived. She selected Lisa Davidson, a North Carolina interior designer who has appeared on HGTV’s “Designer Challenge.”

“Lisa helped me right off the get go with making some changes so the home best fit our needs. Her very best recommendation was a modification of the floor plan giving us an extra bedroom we desperately needed, but did not think we could fit in the existing space,” Yeager shares. Davidson went on to design layouts, furnishings and finishes for five rooms, in addition to making overall recommendations for flooring and paint colors.

While working with an interior designer is not unusual, Yeager’s experience was far different than her first foray into hiring an interior designer — Davidson never set foot in the house nor met Yeager in person. Instead, she worked remotely as an online, or virtual, designer. “I was nervous about working with someone that I never met, but the cost savings were so good that I knew I needed to try it out,” Yeager recalls.

Like traditional designers, online designers offer a range of services from consultations on an hourly basis to whole house designs. Although each designer works a little differently, clients typically complete an extensive questionnaire and provide photos and room measurements. In a phone call, they share their design goals with the designer.

In return, depending on the services contracted, clients receive a custom room design, a layout and space plan that shows where everything goes and a concept board to visualize the overall look, as well as specific recommendations and pricing for furniture, lighting, wall and window treatments and floor coverings. And, most important, a step-by-step guide to completing the room.

“The quality of our designs rivals those designed by way of traditional on-site interior design, but at a lower design service price point,” explains Lisa Ellis, owner of Room Design Online. “Our clients still have access to the same to-the-trade products and retail products that our on-site clients do. They also have unlimited access to us via phone, email and Skype. The only difference is that we don’t step a foot into their homes.”

“It’s not one size fits all, although that’s what I thought it was when I started out,” shares Davidson, owner of InteriorDesignServiceOnline.com. “Services are all pretty individualized depending on what an owner wants. The cost for online design can range from less than $100 for a quick review of an existing room to under $500 for a custom room design to a couple of thousand for an entire house depending the size of the home and the range of services.”

Honing In On the Vision

Budget considerations aren’t the only thing that makes virtual design attractive to buyers of newly built homes. Anyone who’s walked through a home under construction understands how difficult it is to envision the finished product.

Like traditional designers, online designers offer a range of services from consultations on an hourly basis to whole house designs. “You’re walking through rooms with wood framing and steel beams. It’s hard to get an accurate feel for the space,” explains Ellis. “With a home that’s already been lived in, you’re likely to see how the previous owner laid out the furniture. The countertop is already there. While it still takes imagination to see yourself in that home, new construction requires a huge leap of faith. An online designer can get you through that leap of faith to ensure that the home you buy works with the way you want to live.”

Designers can look at a set of plans or photos and envision each room, the volume and feeling of space. “That saves my clients money, mistakes and lot of headaches: like trying to maneuver around a sectional that swallows your entire space,” Ellis says.

Because homeowners must make many decisions in a short amount of time, Davidson says new home construction can be a challenge. “The contractors want instantaneous answers, and homeowners have no clue what grout color might be used. That’s the kind of thing that is overwhelming. But, (because I am) working remotely, I can answer quickly,” Davidson says.

“With Pinterest and Houzz, people are looking at so many things, it’s no wonder they need help,” she explains.

For designers, the task becomes deciphering the common element from all those photos and helping owners understand where they want to go in terms of design. “A good way to make smart decision is to have a vision of where you are going and where you want to go,” Davidson says.

Additionally good designers understand how to cut costs without compromising on value. Yeager says the biggest challenge for her in making decisions was the budget. “What I like, I often cannot afford! Lisa did help me understand where to splurge — like on the counters — and other places to save. This also meant justifying the cost to my hubby was a lot easier.”

When Davidson started her business in 2007, there were few online designers. In recent years, though, the field has exploded. Just as with traditional designers, you need to do your homework including interviewing past clients. Also, not all decorators are designers. Designers typically have completed a specific educational program, often earning a degree in design or the fine arts, have passed a qualifying exam and are members of professional organizations such as the American Society of Interior Designers.

Online design is not for owners unwilling to do the work. “You need to be ready to do some work yourself, but for a busy mom on a budget who still wants a good looking and smartly functioning home, online is awesome,” says Yeager.

What does an interior designer do?

A good home design professional will hone your style down to its very essence and be able to choose a functional layout that feels natural to you. Interior design companies can be involved as much or as little as the client desires. Many clients who hire an interior decorator in Philadelphia, PA — particularly those who are remodeling — have a good sense of how the room should look and what products they should use. Often clients will insist that interior decorators use the products already present in the house. Other times a designer will need to start from scratch — especially if this is a newly purchased or just-built home. An interior design company will need to figure out exactly what the client needs, which includes organizing rooms, picking flooring and wall colors, and finding furniture to complement it all. Sometimes that means he or she will have to recruit help from other Philadelphia, PA home professionals to help create the perfect look for your renovation. Here are some related professionals and vendors to complement the work of interior designers & decorators: Architects & Building Designers. General Contractors. Home Builders. Design-Build Firms. Photographers.

Do your research before meeting with an interior designer or home decorator in Philadelphia, PA. Ask yourself what you want your space to become and what it will be used for. Figure out the extent of what you need help with, what your must-haves are and what your budget is. Interior design services can add up fast, so be up front with a potential design firm or individual from the beginning. Also, pick an interior decorator that fits your style. Browse through the portfolios of different Philadelphia interior design firms and decide if you would live in those houses. Just because you like something doesn’t mean you could live in it. There’s a big difference! You can find more interior designers & decorators in Tinicum Township. Camden. Cherry Hill. Levittown and Mount Laurel.

Questions to ask when you meet with local Philadelphia interior designers:

  • Can you give me a referral? (It makes a big difference to talk with a client who’s worked with the designer before.)
  • Can I see your design portfolio?
  • When will the home renovation be done?
  • Do you charge an hourly rate or a flat rate, or use the cost-plus method or a mixed method?

What’s the difference between interior designers and interior decorators?

These two closely related professions are often mistaken for the same thing, however there are some significant differences to be aware of before deciding which to hire. An interior designer, sometimes known as an interiors architect, can run full renovation and structural design projects, and will use specialised knowledge of interior architecture, construction systems and components, building regulations, materials and furnishings to arrive at your dream home design. Interior design companies are able to plan spaces and room functions down to the last detail, and can help design and renovate interiors, from initial planning phases to placing the last decorative accessory. A decorator on the other hand will typically be involved only in the aesthetic layer, the “look and feel” of a space, and won’t be able to assist in renovations that require structural work. Interior decorators normally come on board after all structural work is complete. So choose your London interior designer according to the type of work you need.

Why should I hire an interior designer in London?

They say life is what happens while you’re busy making plans. Some of us are just too preoccupied with a career and/or family to think about colour schemes, wallpaper, flooring and lighting. A professional interior designer in London can save you bags of time, stress and months, if not years, of living in a half-finished home. It’s their job to stay on top of the latest trends and to have contacts and visual references coming out of their ears. Interior designers and decorators can also save you money, sourcing products via trade contacts or offering affordable alternatives to blowout iconic designs.

How do I choose the right London interior designer for my home?

Good design and visual inspiration are all around us. Start by searching for interior architects and interior designers in London on Houzz. Keep a lookout for images of rooms and features that you really like and save them to your Ideabooks to begin to develop an understanding of your own style and taste. If you notice that photos from the same interior design companies are popping up regularly then that is a good hint that they could be your perfect design match. You can feel most confident if you hire an interior designer or interior design company in London that has completed work similar to the look and feel that you desire, whether that is a mix-and-match lounge oozing mid-century modern style, a pale and interesting minimalist bedroom with shots of colour, or a beautiful space inspired by Scandinavian design.

You may want to check if your designer is a member of the Society of British and International Design (SBID) or The British Institute of Interior Design (BIID). Both are a benchmark of quality and reliability. And check if your interior designers can offer you the right type of service – some companies are design only, while others can oversee the whole project. If it is the latter that you seek, make sure any sub-contractors used are fully accredited and it is clear who they are supposed to report to. If late alterations are made to the plan, the contractor should receive a change order, thus minimising the risk of a dispute about what was and wasn’t agreed to after the start date.

How much does an interior designer in London cost?

Some interior design companies and interior decorators will charge an hourly consultancy rate, particularly if you can’t clearly define scope of the brief. Others prefer to take a percentage of the total project cost, which can vary from 10-20%. The key thing is to be very clear about your budget and your scope from the start, to ensure your designer can advise you on what is achievable. And remember, their contacts will probably save you money. A contingency fund of 10-15% is also recommended, especially if open-ended structural work is involved.

What are some of the important questions to ask London interior designers or interior decorators?

  • What relevant professional interior design qualifications do you have?
  • Are you a member of BIID or SBID?
  • What will be your level of involvement in the project? Are you design-only or do you offer project management too?
  • Do you offer a free initial consultation?
  • Will I be able to see materials samples as well as illustrations and a schedule of work at the outset?
  • Have any of your previous interior design projects involved making structural alterations to an existing property?
  • Which sub-contractors do you intend to use and why? Can I see examples of their previous work?
  • How often will we be meeting to discuss progress and how many site inspections will you carry out?
  • Is your quote fixed and VAT-inclusive? What is not included?
  • What is the proposed completion date and what happens if you do not meet that?
  • Do you have professional indemnity insurance, public liability insurance and employers’ liability insurance?
  • What happens if there is a dispute regarding the designs or the quality of workmanship?
