Abstract

This paper discusses some key findings on user perception of an ambient home design application concept, which combines features of social media, Augmented Reality (AR) and 3D modeling. The two target groups chosen for this study were consumers looking for a new home and pro-users, who have professional or other special interest in decoration or renovation of apartments. In total there were 241 respondents for the scenario-based survey. It appears that there is a demand for easy-to-use design tools for consumers looking for a new apartment and also for professional users
