Scale Model Spotlight: ALBA Condos

By Blog
Hey, it's Chloé

Behind the Creativity: Blog 34

I am very happy to share one of NEEZO’s latest scale models that was created for Edenshaw Developments’ ALBA. ALBA is an upcoming condo development that will feature modern architectural design. With over 400 suites spanning across 32 storeys, this condo development is going to bring a new standard of condominium living to downtown Mississauga, ON.
 
Building every scale model takes hard work, but the end result sure is worth it. That’s why we decided to bring you along to see the journey of the ALBA scale model and how it went from our scale model shop to the middle of the sales center.
I had the opportunity to stop by the ALBA sales center to check out the model on display for myself. How gorgeous does it look in the middle of the sales center?
 
Although here at NEEZO, we create all of the virtual marketing tools as well (ex. Renderings, animations, sales software, etc), there’s nothing like having a scale model on display in the sales center because it gives potential buyers the opportunity to look at the details and really appreciate the intricacy of the building…oh yeah, it also gives people the perfect photo-op. If you were wondering, this scale model was constructed at a scale of 1:75. 
 
As always, we had a great time creating this scale model. If you’re around the area, be sure to stop by the ALBA sales center to check out the model for yourself…you’ll definitely be wowed (please be sure to check the COVID-19 rules and regulations before visiting).

NEEZO’s Animations are on Netflix’s Motel Makeover!

By Blog
Hey, it's Chloé

Behind the Creativity: Blog 33

I am very excited to share that NEEZO Studios’ 3D animations are featured on Netflix’s newest original series, Motel Makeover
 
Motel Makeover is a 6 episode series that “centers on friends and business partners April Brown and Sarah Sklash as they reinvigorate a dated property in Sauble Beach, Ontario. It’s a second location for their brand of June Motels, which offer guests Instagram-worthy backdrops, rosé and plenty of millennial pink.” (Credit: USA Today, Mere home renovations aren’t enough: Motel makeovers are the latest in the supersized TV boom). Motel Makeover began streaming on Netflix on August 25, 2021 and can be watched in 190 countries.
 
Check out some of our animations from Motel Makeover below..yes, these are just screenshots, but you can check out the full animations by watching the episodes 🙂
Our animations on Motel Makeover are used to show viewers the before and after of the spaces. While Sarah and April discuss their plans and how they would like to renovate the Motel, our animations fly onto the screen and build up everything that the girls are saying word for word. This style of animation that we create for these TV shows is a process that takes a lot of in-studio designing and specific NEEZO techniques in order to reach that signature NEEZO look that everyone knows.
 
Although our work has been and continues to be featured on TV shows, it was a pretty cool feeling to see our work and our name in the credits on Netflix.
 
As some of you may know, NEEZO has been the home of the 3D animations on HGTV’s Property Brothers since its inception in 2011, but our history with creating animations for TV doesn’t just stop there. We’ve also created the animations on other shows that feature Drew and Jonathan Scott (a.k.a. The Property Brothers) such as: Brother Vs. Brother, Forever Home, Celebrity IOU, Property Brothers at Home, and more. You might’ve also noticed our animations on CTV’s Holmes Family Effect, on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Income Property, and on channels such as ABC, CBC, W Network, and The Food Network.
 
NEEZO Studios is the go-to studio for the film and television industry and we’re excited for what is to come. Check out Motel Makeover for yourself on Netflix and keep an eye out to spot our animations during each episode.

Project Spotlight: ONE Water Street

By Blog
Hey, it's Chloé

Behind the Creativity: Blog 32

Bringing the Kelowna skyline to life with the dual towers at ONE Water Street! NEEZO Studios had the opportunity to create the 3D photorealistic renderings and animation of the Penthouse for Kerkhoff Construction and North American Development Group (NADG)’s ONE Water Street, an upcoming development that is set to be Kelowna’s soon-to-be tallest high rises.
How We Created the Animation
When creating this animation (and any of our animations for that matter), we really focus on the music. Think about when you watch a movie. No matter if it’s a horror movie, documentary, thriller, etc, the music does so much to draw the audience in and portray a message because it speaks for itself.
For this animation specifically, we knew that this is a classy penthouse project. Rather than choosing an upbeat song for example, a more sophisticated and elegant cinematic track was chosen in order to bring out the classiness and luxuriousness that this penthouse collection is all about.
After choosing the music, we built out the animation to fit with the beat of the song. While you watch the animation, keep an eye to catch some of the moving parts or changing scenes that flow to the beat of the music. 
So now that we’ve covered the importance of the music,  let’s move to our creative approach and pretty much how we did what we did. 
As you can see, the very beginning of the animation starts off with aerial drone footage that shows off not only the surrounding area, but also where the dual towers will be placed once built. From the first few seconds, the music and the footage already draw in the audience.
While creating the animation of the penthouse, we made sure to exemplify just how sophisticated and breathtaking the penthouse collection is. In the majority of the shots, we made sure to show the view that buyers will always be able to see from their floor-to-ceiling length windows. We also included some fun details such as opening the door and making the grand reveal of the private outdoor terrace. (At this point, the music is building up and really keeping the potential buyers fully engaged and drawn to what they are watching).
After going around each room and focusing on the important details, the music settles down and buyers are left wanting more of that enchanting story that they had been watching. 
Creating an impactful animation is all about how you portray the message. With our ONE Water Street penthouse animation, we chose the perfect soundtrack and played with the footage to draw the viewer in and truly tell the story of how enchanting this penthouse collection is.
 
About the Penthouse Collection 
The ONE Water Street penthouse is a 4500+ square feet architectural canvas on the 36th floor. With an additional 2600+ square feet of outdoor space landscaped with lush greenery and surrounded by a breathtaking view, the ONE Water Street penthouse is an impressive place to call home. Since the interiors are pretty much empty canvases when it comes to the design, potential buyers have the freedom to customize their penthouse. With that said, and if you were wondering, Toronto-based interior designer, Gluckstein Design, designed the penthouse collection. Other than working with them on the ONE Water penthouse, NEEZO Studios has collaborated with Gluckstein Design on several occasions to bring to life some amazing projects. The ONE Water penthouse collection has an unbelievable 360 degree view of the surrounding city, lake and mountains from floor-to-ceiling windows and seemingly endless outdoor spaces. 

 

Check out our ONE Water Street penthouse collection portfolio here:
About ONE Water Street
One Water Street is a high-density residential mixed-use development designed with generous amenities for urban and modern living. Located in the heart of downtown Kelowna and just steps from Okanagan Lake, One Water Street offers a series of interconnected public and private spaces to create an engaging and lively pedestrian experience. Priority is placed on creating openness and an informal character that provides opportunities for residents and the public to enjoy and feel at home in the community, and in the in-between spaces. Carefully detailed to be fully responsive to views, climate, and Kelowna’s urban context, One Water Street supports the City of Kelowna’s goal of continuing to grow as a destination to live, work, shop, learn, and play.
This project is currently under development and is anticipated to be completed in 2021.

Project Spotlight: PRESTO Modern Towns

By Blog
Hey, it's Chloé

Behind the Creativity: Blog 31

Over the nearly two decades since NEEZO was first established, we’ve worked with amazing clients. One of our most recent partnerships was with Ambria Homes on their PRESTO Modern Towns project.
 
Ambria Homes sought out NEEZO Studios after taking notice of our breakthrough real estate sales software, LiveSite™. After noticing that our studio provides a wad of innovative, creative real estate services, Ambria Homes felt it was fitting to partner with us to provide the following services: 3D renderings, animation, aerial photography, and our real-time interactive software, LiveSite™.
 
Ambria Homes’ PRESTO Modern Towns is a brand-new community of contemporary townhomes with 1, 2 and 3 bedroom townhomes complete with underground parking, expansive balconies overlooking spectacular views, and amazing interior finishes. Ambria needed PRESTO to be brought to life beyond the printed page of a marketing brochure. They wanted impressive digital marketing materials that would help make the development shine and convey that PRESTO was in an already established neighbourhood. 
Ambria’s goal for their PRESTO Modern Towns project was to bring back affordability by launching at a starting price in the mid-$400’s. This enclave of 298 townhomes is situated in Scarborough, a diverse and vibrant neighbourhood on the east side of Toronto. Did you know… Scarborough is the community where Grammy-nominated artist The Weeknd was raised, along with a host of other notable actors and sports figures who play in the NHL and NBA?
 
In order for us to drop the PRESTO community in 3D and have the actual surrounding area shown in every service we provided, our videography team scouted the site and got the shots that we needed. After doing so, our team was off to the races! Since all of our services are provided under one roof, we were able to pass on all of the drone footage to each division and work simultaneously to get the project finished on time and without delay.
 
Check out the animation that we created for this project here:
 
Now let’s focus a little more on how we customized LiveSite™ for PRESTO…
 
LiveSite™ is not one thing…it’s many and it can be completely customizable to suit a builder’s
needs. With features that allow potential buyers to view the area surrounding the development in
3D, search through units, view/compare 2D and 3D floor plans, check out the area amenities, and
so much more, it’s a tool that truly encompasses everything a builder would need to sell their
development. LiveSite™ combines award winning expertise in software development technology with a deep understanding of the real estate sales process to create impactful and
memorable sales experiences powered by live data.
 
Unit Search
The unit search feature allows users to easily browse the project’s inventory, either by navigating between available floor plans or searching directly on the 3D building model with intuitive search filters. The information displayed in unit search is powered by a live connection to a third-party CMS System, ensuring users are viewing up-to-date information about pricing, availability, and more. The search filters include the ability to review: Price Range, Floor Range, Number of Bedrooms, Geographic Orientation, Square Footage, Search by Name, Search by Suite Type.
3D Area Amenities View
Highlighting the project’s location with a pulled-back satellite view illustrates the key area amenities & transit routes near the project. Users are able to rotate & zoom in/out on the map in 3D and select the amenities drop down menu to view imagery and distance to the project site.
 
Day/Night Cycle
We presented the project in a whole new light by allowing users to select between various times of day. They are able to see the community lit up at dusk, observe a sunset or sunrise, along with viewing the surrounding neighbourhood, complete with moving traffic through the streetscapes. It makes for a dramatic way to explore the project.
3D Floor Plans
Ambria Homes wanted buyers to experience an immersive presentation of the available floor plans that elevated the traditional 2D blackline floor plan to a fully 3D experience. Users could rotate and zoom around the floor plan, visualizing how the layouts compared to one another, in a highly engaging way. Users could also compare 3D floor plans side by side, and seamlessly swap between viewing in 3D or 2D floor plans.
Seasonal Changes
Buyers are able to preview the project in all four seasons to convey the year-round seasonality of their future home.
 
Ambria Homes’ priority preview launch was for real estate brokers (who bring their clients). During the soft-launch, the project sold a whopping 37% of its units! In Ontario, builders need to sell 70-80% of the units before they can begin construction. This project is currently at priority
preview stage for the general public and it’s already halfway to breaking ground! LiveSite’s 3D interactive sales software designed for PRESTO has been a big hit and has immensely allowed potential buyers to understand how great of an upcoming community it is. NEEZO believes that LiveSite™ has a very positive impact on how quickly the sales have been coming in.

NEEZO Studios Conducts Canada-Wide Survey Revealing How Home Buyers Prefer To Research New Homes

By Blog
Hey, it's Chloé

Behind the Creativity: Blog 30

I am so proud to be part of a company that is at the forefront of technology and the architectural visualization industry, but above all, a company that cares so much about its clients and how our work and expertise can positively benefit the real estate industry. As a result, NEEZO Studios contracted Leger Research (the largest Canadian-owned market research and analytics company in Canada) to conduct a never done before in-depth 10 minute survey aimed at providing up-to-date research on homebuyer sentiment related to buying a pre-construction home. This survey gave homebuyers the opportunity to give their honest feedback regarding the digital tools available to them when it comes to envisioning and understanding how their new home will look before it is built.
 
As a leading architectural visualization studio that is always ahead of the game, NEEZO Studios understands how valuable digital marketing tools can be for home buyers, especially now that the Covid-19 pandemic has dramatically shifted the paradigm of the homebuying process.
 
When speaking to prospective new clients, Marvin Maalouf, founder of NEEZO Studios, sometimes encounters those who say: “That’s a cool piece of technology, but…” or “Neat sales software, but…” or “You produce extremely photorealistic 3D renderings and animations, but…my homebuyers don’t care about all this digital/virtual stuff.”
 
Regarding the results of this survey, Marvin stated, “Turns out home buyers do care. Homebuyers today are time-starved, very tech-savvy, and before they even visit a pre-construction sales center, they’ve already done their homework – digitally and virtually.
NEEZO Studios decided to be the very first in the architectural visualization industry to initiate a survey to dispel myths that homebuyers don’t care about digital and virtual selling tools. This survey will be of value to demonstrate to builders and developers what their buyers want and need in today’s pandemic times, and I strongly believe these sentiments will continue, even post-pandemic.”
 
Now at this point, you’re probably eager to find out some of those statistics…thanks for sticking around 🙂
Check out some of our findings from this survey below.
 
A majority say they would appreciate the option to visit new home and condo sales centers virtually (74%)
The most important digital elements when visiting a sales centre are: floor plans in 2D (85%), being able to digitally view home on lot (78%), and seeing the distance to amenities (75%)
The most important features that homebuyers care about are: Viewing floor plans in 2D (85%), Being able to digitally view the home on the lot (78%), Being able to see how many minutes away amenities are (75%), Photo galleries (73%), 3D renderings of the home or condo (73%), Floor Plans in 3D (72%). 
 
Seeing that NEEZO is always at the forefront of the archviz industry, did you know that our real time real estate sales software, LiveSite™, consists of all of these super important features and more? Check out our demo here to learn more about how LiveSite is the perfect tool to sell your upcoming development in the sales center and/or at home via the web.
The most appealing features of a virtual visit would be viewing the kitchen options with the click of a button (73%)
NEEZO has created a very useful kitchen configurator that allows you to view the kitchen options with the click of a button. Check out our demo of the kitchen configurator that we created for Sears USA.
Over half would enjoy looking for a new home virtually (52%)
Ever wondered what the top websites and publications are that homebuyers tend to use? How about their home buying status? What about the time of day that these homebuyers are spending researching your website? Our survey has all of these statistics and much more. To get your hands on the report, please visit this link:
https://marketing.neezostudios.com/home-buying-survey-2020-2021
 
Methodology
The survey questions were created by NEEZO Studios. If you’d like to see additional questions added to future surveys, please feel free to reach out and let us know.
 
The online survey was executed by Leger and conducted among a database of magazine subscribers whose readers are homeowners and homebuyers in Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area. It was carried out and the data was collected between Nov. 12 and 23, 2020. The analysis of the survey was independently provided by Leger.

NEEZO Studios’ research division is committed to conducting this survey on a regular basis. If you’d like to be added to the mailing list to receive this, future research findings or other newsletters, you can reach out via info@neezostudios.com.

Scale Model Spotlight: Nahid Kennedy

By Blog
Hey, it's Chloé

Behind the Creativity: Blog 29

I am very excited to share one of NEEZO Studios’ latest scale models which we created for Nahid Kennedy! Nahid Kennedy is Nahid’s upcoming 10 storey condominium which is located just north of the Scarborough Bluffs. 
I had the opportunity to stop by the Nahid Kennedy sales center when we were setting up our model. It’s always exciting to see our models on display in the middle of the room!
About Nahid Kennedy
Nahid Kennedy is situated in one of Toronto’s most desirable suburbs and diverse cultural communities, central to major transit, shopping, and entertainment. This 10-storey project offers a wide selection of units of various sizes and layouts suitable for any lifestyle and is equipped with fantastic amenities. Suites range from one-bedroom units to family-friendly three bedrooms units.
When it comes to a development being situated so conveniently to transit routes, it’s important to exemplify just how close it really is. On this model, we added a little TTC bus and a bus stop to show how advantageous it is to live there. We also added the Nahid Kennedy promotional banner on both sides of the bus stop and on the bus itself! Check out the picture below.
Don’t the colors pop on this development? If you were wondering, this scale model was created at a scale of 1:50 and is what we would call a fully-detailed model. 
Check out these fun videos about the Nahid Kennedy model
Bringing the model to life. Check out some of the phases that this model went through to be made.
It’s all about the details…especially when it comes to scale models. Check out this video to see some of the cool details that we added to this model.
A Quick Before and After…And just like that, the model is complete. 
We had a great time creating this awesome model! If you’re around the area, be sure to stop by the Nahid Kennedy sales center when it opens up to check out the model for yourself…you’ll definitely be wowed (please be sure to check the COVID-19 rules and regulations before visiting).

NEEZO Studios Wins 1 Gold and 2 Silver Awards at The Nationals 2021!

By Blog
Hey it's Chloé

Behind the Creativity: Blog 28

I am very proud and happy to announce that NEEZO Studios won 1 Gold and 2 Silver awards at this year’s The Nationals, The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) annual awards ceremony…a.k.a. The Oscars of the real estate industry. Winning an award, nevermind 3, especially knowing that 12% of the entries were chosen as Silver Honorees and only 4% earned the gold, is an honor and we are all proud that our innovative work continues to make such a positive impact on the proptech industry.
Red Carpet VIP-VR – Gold Award Winner
NEEZO’s latest 3D breakthrough product, Red Carpet VIP-VR, won the Gold Award for Best Virtual Sales Process/Experience. Red Carpet VIP-VR was invented out of necessity during the COVID-19 pandemic. After noticing that many of our builder clients were not able to continue with their launches due to the pandemic, NEEZO Studios’ founder, Marvin Maalouf, came up with this innovative virtual reality sales center as a safe and effective alternative that allows builders to invite their homebuyers to the front of the line, wherever they are!
Essentially, Red Carpet VIP-VR serves as a prelude to NEEZO’s real time real estate sales software, LiveSite™.  For those unable to visit the sales centre in person, we made sure to implement a series of interactive touchpoints that enabled users to download, listen to or view 3D elements of the entire sales centre (custom-rendered in photorealistic 3D, based on the builder’s actual sales centre). Beyond a mere 3D tour, NEEZO enhanced conventional (walk through) VR with a myriad of interactive components:
  • A video-hostess who points out what you can see/do at every interactive touchpoint of the sales centre
  • Virtual guests can peruse the standard and upgrade packages
  • Buyers are one click away from photo-realistic, 3D renderings of the various kitchen combinations
  • Virtual visitors can orbit around the scale model in 360 degrees, to observe every angle of the building.
  • Schedule an appointment on the spot, virtually or in-person
  • View interactive brochures, floorplans, features and finishes and a gallery of images (and download the marketing materials if they wish)
  • Check out the builder’s story

HGTV’s Brother Vs. Brother – Silver Award Winner
NEEZO Studios won a Silver Award for Best Video – Long Format – Over 1 Minute for our 3D animations and renderings on HGTV’s Brother Vs. Brother! NEEZO Studios has had the honor and privilege to create all of the 3D flythrough animated scenes featured in Property Brothers, Brother Vs. Brother, Forever Home, and a few more Property Brothers shows. The interior and exterior flythrough scenes that NEEZO creates for every Property Brothers show is a really cool process that takes a lot of in-studio designing and special NEEZO Studios techniques in order to be able to complete that signature NEEZO look.
Check out this upbeat video that NEEZO Studios put together to see some of our awesome work from Brother VS. Brother season 7:
The Stanley District – Silver Award Winner
NEEZO Studios won another Silver Award for the LiveSite™ application that we created for The Stanley District, La Pue International’s upcoming development in the Niagara Falls area. The category that we won this award in was Best Use of Technology. 
LiveSite’s award-winning feature set offers an engaging user experience that enables homebuyers to orbit around the community, browse live product inventory, view and compare 2D/3D floor plans, take a building tour, discover local area amenities and transit routes situated around the development, view a media gallery with extra information about the development, watch a cinematic animation of the development, check out the development during different seasons and at different times of the day with a geographically accurate day & night cycle. On top of all that, every LiveSite™ project is custom-tailored to match your project’s branding. Driven by a powerful, web-based CMS, LiveSite™ empowers your sales team to: manage unit and lot availability (ex. hiding/revealing floors or units as you wish), adjust pricing, provide sales reports and more. The most unique element about LiveSite™ is that it’s compatible on every platform–desktop, laptop, tablet, Android, iOS mobile devices; making your sales centre virtually unforgettable! 
Check out our demo of The Stanley District LiveSite™ application that won the Best Use of technology Silver Award:
On behalf of everyone here at NEEZO, thank you to The Nationals for these awards!

NEEZO Studios’ Animations Featured on CTV’s Holmes Family Effect

By Blog
Hey it's Chloé

Behind the Creativity: Blog 27

On behalf of NEEZO Studios, I am very pleased to announce that we had the amazing opportunity to create the 3D renderings and animations for CTV’s new show, Holmes Family Effect
Each episode follows the Holmes family (Mike Holmes, Sherry Holmes, and Michael Holmes) as they surprise deserving people who make differences in their communities with amazing renovations. 
What To Expect In This Show…
Check out the show’s trailer here:
How Our Animations Are Used Throughout The Show
This show has a unique approach. When the Holmes family regroups at the beginning of the episode to discuss the changes that they would like to make to each of the spaces, Mike Holmes opens up a floorplan on the table and voila…our animation appears as a 3D levitating version of the 2D floor plan that they were looking at.  The camera then zooms in to showcase the transformation of each space.  So instead of starting the animation showing the distressed state of a space to what it can potentially transform to, we created the entire area that needed to be renovated as a floating object.
Adding these 3D animated elements to every show we work on, including Holmes Family Effect, allows the audience to engage and understand the renovations that are to be made as well as the potential of what the space could be transformed to.
Some call it magic, we call it the NEEZO touch! Here are a few shots from the debut episode of Holmes Family Effect where you can see how our renderings and animations are used in each episode:
Be sure to tune in to CTV every Sunday at 8:00pm EST to catch an all new episode of Holmes Family Effect…and don’t forget to keep an eye out to spot our renderings and animations throughout!

A Year In Review: 2020

By Blog
Hey it's Chloé

Behind the Creativity: Blog 26

Happy New Year!! What a year 2020 has been for all of us. Of course a lot of events occurred last year, but as we all know, the biggest situation that was presented to us and that we are still facing is the global pandemic, Covid-19. Before we dive into this blog and speak about some memorable moments that NEEZO experienced in 2020, I want to take the time to say that I hope you had a great holiday break and are doing well considering these challenging times. Covid-19 was definitely a big shock to us all, but we’ve been getting through it and will get to a point where things can slowly start going back to normal.
RELEASING RED-CARPET VIP-VR™
Now that the way we live our lives has changed because of Covid-19 and forced us to try our best to stay home and not go out unless necessary, it undoubtedly changed the way real estate developers are able to sell their upcoming developments in the sales center, since not many people are able to be in there all at once or feel comfortable doing so due to social distancing rules.
So naturally, NEEZO saw this as an opportunity to push the limits in our creative architectural visualization abilities. As a result of this unanticipated new way to live, NEEZO Studios created RED-CARPET VIP-VR™, a Virtual Reality walkthrough unlike any other. RED-CARPET VIP-VR™ gives potential buyers the opportunity to tour the sales center virtually from the comfort of their home. With the ability to view brochures, floorplans, animations, a scale model, the builder’s story, schedule in-person/virtual appointments, and so much more, all while being directed by a video-hostess, RED-CARPET VIP-VR™ is the safest alternative to having buyers visit the sales center.

TV SHOWS
Celebrity IOU Season 1 & 2

 

NEEZO Studios had the great opportunity to create the 3D animations and renderings on both seasons of HGTV’s Celebrity IOU. What makes Celebrity IOU so different from the other Property Brothers shows is that it gives celebrities the opportunity to express their gratitude towards someone who has had a significant impact on their lives.
The celebrities in season 1 were: Brad Pitt, Rebel Wilson, Viola Davis, Jeremy Renner, Michael Bublé, and Melissa McCarthy. The celebrities in season 2 were: Zooey Deschanel, Allison Janney, Rainn Wilson, and Justin Hartley. 

 

Brother Vs. Brother Season 7
In 2020, NEEZO Studios also had the pleasure of creating the 3D animations and renderings for season 7 of HGTV’s Brother Vs. Brother. Following Drew and Jonathan Scott, a.k.a. The Property Brothers, Brother Vs. Brother makes the brothers go head to head to revamp the properties they choose and see who can make the most profit from each sale.
Check out some of our animations from Brother Vs. Brother season 7 here:
More than one year of Property Brothers Forever Home
May 2020 marked one year of Property Brothers Forever Home which means that NEEZO also celebrated creating the 3D animations and renderings for the show and by December 2020, HGTV had begun airing season 4 of Forever Home!
Check out some of our animations from Forever Home season 1 here:
Where To I Do? Season 3
In 2020, NEEZO Studios also had the pleasure to create the 3D animations and renderings on another season of CTV Life channel’s Where To I Do? 
Check out this season’s trailer here (you’ll also spot some of our animations throughout the video):
ONE YEAR OF LIVESITE™

With effective features such as 2D/3D floor plans, 3D Area Amenities, Home & Lot Search, 3D Home View, Unit Search (as seen in the image below) and many more, Livesite™ has truly stepped up the game when it comes to efficient and memorable sales experiences.

FEATURED IN ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST
Back in February 2020, NEEZO Studios’ stunning birds eye view rendering of Mizrahi Developments’ The One was featured in a special edition of AD magazine, the 100th Anniversary of AD–a Collector’s Issue.
Every year, Architectural Digest reveals the highly anticipated “AD100 list”– an annual survey of the top names in interior design/decor/architecture.
This particular “AD100” issue earns extra special “collector’s edition status” since 2020 marks AD’s 100th anniversary (in addition to the issue showcasing their top 100 interior designers list)!
No matter how strange life might’ve been for the majority of 2020, it’s definitely a blessing to still be here, healthy and safe. We had some very exciting moments here at NEEZO Studios last year and we’re excited for what’s to come in 2021. On behalf of NEEZO Studios, a special thank you goes out to all of our clients. Happy New Year again and here’s to 2021!

On behalf of NEEZO Studios, I would like to wish you and your loved ones a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!! 
This year has definitely been a rollercoaster for all of us so it’s important to take this time to relax and enjoy the company of those you love. What better time to do that than during the holidays?! 
The snow is falling, snowmen are smiling, present under the tree, beautiful lights all around…Christmas is right around the corner and holiday preparations are in full swing🎄Check out this fun and festive animation that we created! We heard that Santa’s 18-wheeler is stocked with scale models, 3D renderings, animations, and touchscreens for a special delivery to some awesome sales centers!
 
There’s no doubt that the scenery outside is 10x nicer when it snows, right? In honour of it being the holiday season, check out some of these snow-filled renderings below.
The above image looks like a rendering, right? Well, this is a still image from the LiveSite™ application that we created for the Stanley District in Niagara Falls.
LiveSite™ is NEEZO’s real estate sales software and one of the many cool features that are available on it include Day/Night/Seasons cycle where you can see what the development will look like at all those times…this still image was taken from the Winter season!
