Architectural Renderings: Is The Computer Version The Best One?

Services for Real Estate Pros with James Colucci Enterprises

Sometimes your project just needs the right architectural rendering to make it complete. In that case, googling the term "architectural rendering" may return a variety of confusing results. Do you want a digital rendering? Is a rendering by hand more expensive?

While architectural rendering may bring to mind an individual with a pencil and a drafting board, the constant presence of technology in our lives has changed even this process. Most firms that offer architectural renderings will now only offer you the option of a digital image that offers the kind of photo realism we've come to expect from the computer-age. There are, though, a few that will offer you a traditional hand drawn rendering as well. Here are some key differences that may help you make a decision on which type of architectural rendering would best fit your needs.


  • Digital architectural renderings create 3D images of the parts of the building or home you wish to highlight. This can include the rooms of the home or building, walls (including textures and colors), the ceilings of the building or home, as well as the surrounding area like the garden, backyard, or swimming pool.
  • Architectural renderings that are drawn by hand tend to show static images. The do, however, include the colors and textures as well as any area of the building or home you with to highlight.
  • Digital architectural renderings tend to cost hundreds of dollars more than hand drawn renderings.
  • Architectural renderings that are drawn by hand are a bit less expensive, and they include a human element that captures the subtleties you wish to display far better than a digital image ever could.
  • Digital architectural renderings take about three to five days to produce.
  • Architectural renderings that are created by hand tend to take about two weeks to produce.

Because of the prevalence of software programs that can produce digital architectural renderings, most firms these days offer clients the option of the rendering type. Looking carefully at your specific needs and talking with the firm of your choice may help you decide which type of architectural rendering is best for your present situation.
