It’s time to foray into some new software again. I’ve heard lots of good things about Enscape 3D rendering, and finally decided to give it a try. I’m finding it a joy to use, and for visualizing designs, especially interiors, it does a splendid job. It’s one more tool I can add to my repertory, alongside Blender and V-Ray. The following kitchen interior renovation was modeled in Sketchup and I used Enscape to provide quick, and interactive views of the design.
I also have some new renderings I’m happy to highlight here. Included are an interior rendering for new construction, a chapel exterior, and a urban landscape design proposal.
It’s been a while, we need to return to updating the blog! There are a handful of projects to showcase here, some new and a few that are updates of earlier projects. Often, a project that comes into the office from an architectural firm will go through a design phase where the renderings are used to inform architectural decisions. Once the design is refined, that architect’s client will want a set of renderings with more “life” to them that can then be used for marketing. The first two projects shown were in the office earlier that came back to get populated with “entourage.” The following residential projects are a mix of styles and interior and exterior renderings.
We’re ramping up for some big projects this year! There is some great work on the boards, and it has already been quite busy with a slate of projects since the new year. Here are a couple projects from the beginning of the year. The restaurant interior renderings are updates from earlier versions I worked on last year. The client is finalizing finishes and lighting fixture selections, so the renderings have been helping them make these decisions. The residential interiors below have actually been going through a similar process, The architect is using these to show the clients how their finish selections and millwork installations will look in the existing spaces.
While 2017 was a tumultuous year politically in #Charlottesville, I was fortunate to work on many rewarding projects and expand my production capabilities. There were some big advances this past year in the software I use, which along with improved hardware, allowed me to deliver some great work. Besides my 3D modeling and rendering, I continued to work on small architectural commissions throughout the year. I enjoy keeping my work varied, and thank all my clients old and new for a successful year. All the best for 2018! Here are a few projects I finished in the last part of this year.
I had the opportunity to help Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville showcase their latest neighborhood development. This was one of their upcoming projects highlighted in their fall fundraiser, the Rake-a-thon. The aerial views were rendered in V-Ray for Sketchup 3.6
