What people are saying about Arkio

We had an opportunity to pitch for another high-profile project and said we need Arkio for this. We used Arkio, pitch was succcessful and we won the project.

Ernesto Pacheco Ernesto Pacheco Director of Visualization, CannonDesign

Arkio is an unprecedented design tool that advances the way our teams work digitally. It removes the barriers we face with siloed modeling processes with an intuitive platform that connects our different design workflows into a collaborative immersive environment.

David Morgan David Morgan Designer / VR Specialist, Sasaki Associates

Arkio is the first truly viable tool for architectural modelling in VR and a step ahead of more photo-realistic VR tools that provide only limited options for design.

Greg Davey Greg Davey Director, Davey + Smith Architects

Arkio is a perfect and simple tool for teaching and learning VR. It allows us to engage learners from novice to expert VR users to design and collaborate in VR, and to interact with their 3D scanned models and immerse in their scanned environment without programming skills.

Ann Stevens Ann Stevens Lecturer of UX, Games & Interactive Design, TAFE Queensland

I am an aspiring designer, who enjoys creating in VR. Using Arkio, gives me the space to showcase my imagination with endless possibilities to build. As I enhance my craft, I am eager to share my unique vision and designs with the world.

Roshon Butts Roshon Butts Concept Designer

Arkio is a game-changer in design and design communication. Bringing clients into a shared VR experience to talk about their space and possibilities helps us communicate the design process in spatial and visual way. I am also impressed with the continuous updates and expanded functionality that the team deploys. Arkio is truly a tool made by and for designers.

Hugh Soward Hugh Soward Innovation Specialist, OPN Architects
