Next-Generation Creative Studio Transparent House Delivers Cutting-Edge VR and Technology Solutions to The San Francisco Shipyard

SAN FRANCISCO, LOS ANGELES, MOSCOW and BERLIN, Jan. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Southeastern shoreline of San Francisco is being reimagined by FivePoint, the master developer of The San Francisco Shipyard and the iconic Candlestick Park site. At over 760 acres, The Shipyard Communities will deliver 12,100 homes with a mix of affordable and market-rate apartments, townhomes and condominiums adjacent to more than 350 acres of waterfront parks, trails and restored shoreline in the City's Bayview neighborhood. The principals of the international award-winning, next-generation creative studio Transparent House (TH) are proud to detail their ongoing collaborations with FivePoint Northern Division.

As one of the largest urban developments on the West Coast, The San Francisco Shipyard provides an extraordinary opportunity to participate in the creation of an exciting community. The Shipyard is a connected community that delivers a world class neighborhood – housing, along with an innovative commercial district providing offices, labs, research facilities, and reclaimed heritage buildings situated amongst acres of public space and sports grounds.

From a residential perspective, TH has been vital in the creation of interactive marketing tools that support The SF Shipyard's sales efforts. From 3D floorplans and renderings to sales applications and videos - all of the applications artfully combine highly crafted, photoreal 3D visual elements with live-action footage. The most impactful tools to date are two photorealistic interactive Virtual Reality (VR) apps developed in-house at TH for use with the Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear and Google Cardboard viewers.

"Thanks to Transparent House's 'Past and Future VR Experience' app, our community members, investors and prospective residents and tenants can easily step into the past to see, hear and feel what it was like to be on an active Navy Base in the 1940s during World War II," said Sheryl McKibben, vice president of community operations for the FivePoint Northern California office. "Then, they can seamlessly transition to the future of The SF Shipyard, and experience the vibrant community of San Franciscans living, working and playing in this bustling neighborhood."

The second VR application is "The SF Shipyard VR Tour," which is a fully stereoscopic, beautifully detailed 3D VR mobile experience set in a condominium flat at The SF Shipyard. By simply downloading the app on Google Play and Apple's App Store and pairing it with any VR viewer, anyone can easily tour this condominium flat from anywhere in the world.

"People are really starting to understand the power of VR to allow us to experience different realities from anywhere, and even interact with them – for example, to change what we see," said TH president Denis Krylov. "The VR Tour app for The SF Shipyard is a great example of how game engines and other technologies can be used to immerse potential buyers and engage with them in ways that build very strong perceptions."

Additional benefits of these VR apps include future residents being able to virtually tour their home during construction, artists seeing what new buildings will look like, and businesses being able to assess the community's strengths for future office locations.
