Twinmotion Case study: Pim van den Broek


See what a very creative Twinmotion user in The Netherlands has done using this revolutionary software.


Pim van den Broek used Twinmotion for the "Domela Nieuwenhuis" project in Amsterdam. This was a piece of wasteland where a church had stood and it was now being considered for development by the municipality. They were looking for a landmark which would revert to the old church, but in a modern design and with a modern function. The firm of Pim van den Broek that was commissioned for the project used Twinmotion because it enabled them to quickly produce a clear image of the concept, with. visualizations and animations that gave all parties a clear idea of the possibilities of the space. The process took only two days, from the first idea until the final renderings and animations.
