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.
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.
One of my favorite media for construction of any kind is Stone and Heavy Timber, but I especially like using it in residential applications. I’ve put in enough time to get some massing models rendered. I’m not showing materials and not very much fenestration yet, but you can get a good idea of the basic shape of things.
I’ve been busy and haven’t updated or posted to the web site lately, so here it is. I’ve been working on this one for a while. I’m pretty happy with the progress. There a four renderings showing the whole structure. Let me know what you think. Modeled in ArchiCAD and rendered in Artlantis.
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.
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
I did the original version of this house in about 1996 and a couple of years later in 1998 did another version of it for another client. This one is a bit bigger and raised a bit so that the basement isn’t so far in the ground. Here’s an exterior view and a kitchen view. I’ll try to post floor plans in the near future.
