Recent Work – Harbor View at the Navy Yard
In architectural images, adding people makes the image more dynamic, gives a sense of scale, illustrates how a space might be used, and can highlight design features but, most importantly, it humanizes the space. After all, isn’t the space designed for people?
For these images of the newly renovated common spaces at Harbor View at the Navy Yard, Malloy Interiors wanted people in some of the shots. Including people working out in the fitness room with a view of the harbor at dawn was an obvious choice, but we also added human elements to the fitness lobby and main reception area.
Fashion changes faster than design, and some clients worry that architectural images with people will look dated sooner. Therefore, I always provide clients with a version of the photos without people as well.
