Enscape: real-time visualisation


Realise your design potential with real-time visualisation & VR

Enscape is a real-time visualisation and virtual reality tool for architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) professionals. It plugs directly into CAD and BIM software, bringing together design and visualisation workflows across all project phases. It is the easiest and fastest way to turn models into immersive 3D experiences.

Enscape empowers you to create lifelike design experiences, so you can experiment, share ideas, and envision better designs. It works with Revit, SketchUp, Archicad, Rhino, and Vectorworks.


Enscape’s mission is to unleash the creativity of the builders of tomorrow through continuous innovation in accessible design technology.

Virtual visualisation and modelling

Real-time visualisation & VR for your design process

1- Proposals and competition

Enscape makes it effortless to create compelling visuals by integrating with design tools.

2- Pre-design

Enscape’s rendering option makes it easy to communicate data visually without distracting information.

3- Schematic design

Enscape makes the transition out of pre-design into schematic design seamless. Its visualisation allows for quick visual assessment that is logical and intuitive.

4- Design development

Enscape enables fast A/B comparisons without switching views or interfaces and can present them through panoramas, VR environments, or static or real-time renderings via the modelling tool.

5- Construction documents

Enscape provides visual confirmation of problems and errors that stakeholders and design team members can then discuss and resolve.

6- Construction administration

Enscape provides rapid visualisations of changes, so swift approval can keep the construction schedule unchanged. Enscape QR codes on sites allow the public to see and understand the building before it’s built.

7- Post-construction

Enscape allows interested buyers and renters to see the full potential of a space by visualising a complete room with finishes, furniture, and equipment.

Designing Spaceport America

Viewport Studio is a team of architects and designers based in London and Singapore. In 2019, they designed the interior of the world’s first purpose-built commercial spaceport in New Mexico, USA.

Tasked with designing something that has never been done before, they shared how Enscape played a significant role for this dream project. Read more.
