Timber Interior

In my last post I promised interiors.  I’m still working on things, in other words this is a work in progress, here’s an interior.   Sitting at the dinning room table looking across into the kitchen.  The rendering took about 28 hours to render.  There are a lot of lights and glass in this view of the model so calculation time is very long.  Most of the modeling was done in ArchiCAD and the rendering was done in Cinema 4D.

Heavy Timber Update

Here’s an update to the heavy timber project I posted a while back.  We are still working on this and I hope to have some interiors soon.  We’ll have to see how things go.  I’m modeling this in ArchiCAD and then doing the final renderings in Cinema 4D.  There’s a few things that are easier for me in C4D.  Like landscape and water and etc.  Somehow all the materials look better also, that could just be me.  Since I’ve been using C4D for a number of years I have a pretty good collection of materials, landscape and all.

Country Living

It’s been a while since I posted here so I thought share something I’m currently working on.  I’m calling this County Living – though it’s not necessarily made for that.  It’s feels a bit like county charm.

This also gives me an opportunity to play with ArchiCAD’s new Cinerender engine which has a nice little feature that lets you render in white giving the model a mass model feel with out a lot of detail.

Craftsman v.2 Plan

Here are the plans for the Craftsman style house I promised.  It’s 4,560 square feet and features a nice size Master Bedroom on the main floor along with a great room concept Family, Kitchen and Eating Area.  There’s also a Living Room and Dining Room on the main level.  The main level of the house features daylighting by clerestory windows.   There’s a second Bedroom adjacent to the Kitchen and Utility areas.  The basement features a Guest Suite and large Family Room and additional Bedrooms and Utility spaces
