2021 VOSH Annual Christmas Gathering
Last year, the VOSH team was treated to a magical Christmas celebration that was graciously hosted by Prairie Gardens & Adventure Farm in Bon Accord, Alberta. The evening began with a tractor-drawn hayride around the farm, followed by storytelling around crackling bonfires and a taste of locally crafted beverages. Prior to the start of dinner, our staff enjoyed a hands-on Christmas wreath crafting session, complete with fresh juniper and pine branches and a wide variety of ribbons and baubles to add a personal touch to each wreath and door hanger. Our team also had fun concocting our own salt rub consisting of fresh salt harvested from Vancouver Island and fire ash to add a smoky flavour to the rub. As for dinner, it was absolutely delicious and most of our team had very little room for the Gingerbread Crisp dessert!
We highly recommend a visit to Prairie Gardens & Adventure Farm – for more information, please visit www.prairiegardens.org.
VOSH’s New Home
What better way to start a new year than with a set of keys to our new office location! As of February 4, 2022, VOSH received the keys to our new home, along with a lovely congratulatory gift from our real estate agent, Tom Lowe (Re/Max Real Estate). Since 2008, we have undertaken numerous renovations and expansions to our current location and to say that we are deeply rooted in this space is an understatement. From ISIS Design and Architecture Inc. to Voshell Architecture and Design, Inc., our story is one that speaks to determination and perseverance and the space we inhabited served us well. Now, it’s time for a new chapter. The great thing is that we’ll be less than a block away from where our story began and we can’t wait to show you our new home once the renovations are done!
Virtual meets reality
At VOSH, we’re able to create collaborative, immersive, interactive experiences for our clients, contractors and design team members alike. Even though virtual reality has been around for a number of years, it was the video gaming industry that pushed it as a mainstream option and one that has rapidly made its mark in the AEC industry.
Virtual Reality (VR) is an incredible tool and one of the value-adds that VOSH brings to a project. It allows for a detailed walk-through of a rendered version of our Revit model so that each space of a building’s design (complete with interior colours and finishes!) can be viewed before it’s even built. With a bit of programming knowledge, VR models can also be heavily customized, allowing engineers and architects to produce memorable, interactive real time walkthroughs.
In combination with drawings, renderings and 3D models, VR bolsters the visualization of our projects because it is far more detailed and complex than traditional physical models. We have also found that VR models can
