Architects use a variety of analog and digital tools and media to plan and design constructions. Immersive virtual reality (VR) technologies have shown great potential for architectural design, especially for exploration and review of design proposals. In this work we propose a virtual studio system, which allows architects and clients to use arbitrary real-world tools such as maps or rulers during immersive exploration of virtual 3D models. The user interface allows architects and clients to review designs and compose 3D architectural scenes, combining benefits of mixed-reality environments with immersive head-mounted display setups.
