This paper presents the conceptual and architectural design of a multilayered framework aiming to provide a two handed gesture based visual interactive 3D object oriented environment for software development. We argue that this is a viable, intuitive and attractive approach for software development facilitating natural human computer interaction, thus supporting tasks related to software development in a more effective and efficient way. We illustrate the value of the proposed environment through a data analysis from early evaluations of one prototype system in use. The results and implications of this study are useful for designing effective and efficient gesture based 3D interactive software development environments.
