Walking the Walk: Designstor Walkable VR for 567 Clarke + Como

You probably already know how important a model suite is in the process of selling a new development. We humans are easily confused by things like plans and dimensions, and we greatly prefer a physical experience over looking at pictures when it comes to understanding spaces. By doing this, we create spatial memory and help build an emotional […]

Moving as in: box all of your belongings, pack up all the servers, turn the lights off, and say hello to a brand new […]

Notice Anything Different?

Much has changed since Designstor was founded in 2000, and much will continue to change as we grow.

Like most humble beginnings, it took great work with even better clients to turn our wax coated […]
