This paper presents a development process for intelligent virtual environments (IVEs) considering the immersion of real objects and human beings in virtual simulations. This development process includes a meta-model for designing, a set of tools to facilitate the implementation and a simulation platform. The paper presents a case study that makes use of this development process for designing adapted spaces for people with physical disabilities.
