The move from premises in which the book shop had traded for almost 30 years was intimidating enough, but knowing what the proposed new building could look like through the excellent 3D rendering provided by Adrian and Margaret at Into Reality, not only removed any anxiety, but increased the excitement of such a bold move for the business.

Visuals to help plan the layout of new premises. The interior needed to retain elements of a traditional book shop, with a modern twist.
To contain costs by up-dating and retaining existing fixtures and fittings. To plan the layout to accommodate client’s Signed First Editions mail order business.
A new upstairs concept was developed for the Signed First Editions. Into Reality suggested using a snooker table, with an added top, for packing the books. A series of 3D visualisations enabled the client to experiment with layouts. This gave them complete confidence in the final results.
Into Reality's package included:
2D AutoCAD plans and layouts
3D model of the new premises
3D models of all the fixtures and fittings were created
3D virtual reality walk-through
Into Reality recommended adding pelmets as a styling feature
This gave the bookcases a more traditional appearance
