The success of any exterior CGI is entirely dependant on the quality of the architectural photography. We work with established photgraphers, or do the shoots ourselves, to make sure we have quality material to work with. For this project ground level and drone photography was shot over many days and across several site visits.


611 West 56th St by Pritzker Prize winning architect Álvaro Siza is a project that we are immensely proud to have been involved with over the past few years. This film was shot on location in New York City and features many of the industry leading 3D techniques that The Boundary has become known for.

Produced entirely in-house, this is a showcase of The Boundary's full-service film production offering. CG compositing, movie-grade VFX and real-world cinematography allow us to seamlessly move between the real and virtual worlds, creating a beautiful and emotive cinematic experience.

611 West 56th Street was a perfect collaboration between Alvaro Siza, Gabellini Sheppard and the quality and craftsmanship of Sumaida & Khurana, which produced a one of a kind building in Manhattan.
