I worked with a Stoneking/ von Storch architects on rendering this interior design for a new restaurant in town. We went through several iterations testing finishes and lighting options to refine the initial design.
This next project was done for a development company that is marketing a residential building on the waterfront in Southeast DC. I prepared some initial marketing material for a presentation the company was preparing. These renders show a typical apartment interior and the rooftop amenity space.
A few of the projects I was going to post recently have been going through some redesign, so I keep holding off, waiting so I can post the final renderings. Here is one project that was pretty quick. These are some conceptual interior renderings for a commercial space that is being offered for lease. The space is currently empty, so the real estate agent asked me to show two options for the interior build-out. One option is a offices and event space, the other is a small gym.
The release of the new version 3 of V-Ray for Sketchup has taken a bit of effort to incorporate into my workflow. There are many changes in how V-Ray handles materials the net effect of which has made large swathes of my existing models obsolete. On the one hand, the render engine that uses video card rendering has been substantially upgraded, which makes for fast renders. On the other hand, the workflow changes have been most pronounced in this method of rendering. The massing study image above is the first project for which I’ve actually used the latest V-Ray for Sketchup.
The image below is a photo-realistic view of a commercial project that I had rendered previously in a watercolor style.
Conceptual interior renderings of a proposed shared office space in an existing building.
Exterior renderings of a small-footprint development within Lochlyn rendered with Vray for Blender.
I’ve been converting more of my workflow into Vray for Blender. As I convert more of my asset library and build up my material collection, I working on getting my production up to speed (definitely slower right now than working in Vray for Sketchup – however – the renderings run much much faster.) Here are a some selected projects from the past couple months, all rendered in Vray for Blender.
Here is a set of interiors for a new condo building that will be starting pre-sales soon.
This is a series of exterior renderings for a lake-front mixed use building that is currently in review with the local zoning board.
Another tropical project! This is a guest cabin being constructed in an eco-resort in Central America.
