Adios 2019!

It’s been an intense year, with a number of architectural projects to counterbalance the regular slate of 3D modeling and rendering work at Orban Design. Below is a sampling of various projects from the latter part of the year.

Goodbye 2017!

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.

Adios 2016! massing study, updated landscaping

Wrapping up the year with some massing studies, and a revision to an earlier project. The main revision to last month’s project was adding in a landscaping plan, but there were also some tweaks to the architecture plus generating some additional views. I could not have pulled off this rendering without Vray for Blender, as the landscaping took quite a lot of computing power to generate in 3D.

This massing study was a quick conceptual project that needed a convincing representation of the existing building, but still keeping a loose feel. The illustration style allowed for reviewing a few variations of the concept without too much emphasis on the details. Here is the photo of the existing conditions, with two versions of the studies following.

Summertime

Between the vacations the past couple months with my wife and kids, I still had plenty to work on over the summer. Here is an assortment of work I’ve completed recently, in a wide range of scales and styles.

Marketing renderings for an apartment building with a complex stepped series of roof terraces. I’ll probably work some more on these to show the terrace spaces with occupants, and maybe add some more variety to the green roofs. Often I’ll go through numerous iterations of my renders as I add in enough detail to satisfy the client.

Massing study for a new custom residence. These study models are very helpful to the architect and the client so the can quickly see if the schematic plans and elevations are heading in the right direction. There is an review board for this development and this is very helpful to use in presenting the schematic drawings.
