Trey Tyler

Trey Tyler

Owner

A formally trained architect that graduated from North Carolina State University (Bachelor of Architecture) in 1996, Trey Tyler has more than twenty-three years of experience in design and visualization. Trey founded RenderSphere in 2011 to bring clients a level of insight and expertise in the 3D process that goes beyond what a typical ArchViz firm usually provides. Trey’s practical, hands-on understanding of the design process informs his work as a 3D artist and helps guide his team with a client-focused approach that ensures design intent is illustrated with accuracy and premier quality. This team mentality allows project stakeholders to give feedback throughout the visualization process which promotes the joint development of all final products. Trey truly understands his clients need to receive the highest degree of control, value, and quality on each project.

With a long-time passion for modern design, Trey has served for over 3 years as a Board Member for Modern Richmond, a local non-profit that seeks to promote, educate, and celebrate Modernism in Richmond and beyond. Through Modern Richmond, Trey helps identify exceptional modern buildings for monthly tours and was one of three committee members that led the organization to develop the first Modern Richmond Book released in April of 2019. The book celebrates 10 years of tours (100+ buildings total) and highlights 50 of those 100 projects. Not only was Trey a instrumental in the creation and development of the book as a whole, but he also designed a house that is featured in the Book: The Peters Ramsey House (3008 Grayland Ave.), he had 25 of his photographs included in the book, and he is one of a handful of authors that contributed essays for the book. Trey’s essay discusses “Modern Details” and draws upon several of the highlighted projects to illustrate how thoughtful and inspired details can help reinforce the modern concepts of the project as a whole.
