Vis-Lab is a team of six individuals educated as architects and industrial designers producing immersive 3D experiences specializing in experiential, retail and residential real estate projects.. We have offices in both Hawaii and Amsterdam, which allows us to work continually across time zones for the fastest turn around times possible.

Vis-lab can accommodate any visualization request, whether still images, animation, or VR environments, excelling in the production of high end photo-realistic imagery.

We work in all phases of the design process - from concept and schematic, to design development, and marketing - providing a range of 3d modeling and rendering options to suit each particular circumstance.

We don't want to just work FOR you, we want to work WITH you. We know that more often than not, project timelines can shift, clients can be demanding, and that cost can be restricting. At Vis-Lab, we want to work in a way that best suits your companies workflow, so we maintain flexibility in regards to every aspect of our work.  

We can accommodate a wide variety of visualization requests, from traditional still images, to fully immersive and interactive virtual reality experiences. 

We also provide tertiary services such as 3D Modeling or concept design work. In short, we are able to intuitively fill in any gaps that may be required to present the most accurate and captivating 3D imagery available on the market today. 

3d Modeling

We take anything from a napkin sketch to a finished Revit model and further develop your model, add context, people, plants, tree, and fine details to help bring your project to life. 


A beautiful render will WOW your customers and allow them to visualize your design down to the finest details, as well as providing an excellent return on investment when used for marketing purposes.


Animations provide the next level of engagement to your customers, allowing them to further immerse themselves into the design and reveal details and volumes that wouldn't necessarily be perceivable through only still images.


This is the most immersive experience available to us technology has to offer. You will be able to review your project in a way not possible through set cameras. Find construction conflicts before they are built in the real world, and pre-sell units without actually building anything.
