Welcome 2019!

It’s been a busy start to 2019, and it’s been a while since we’ve published a new post. One big project has been a series of walkthroughs for a new apartment building in Washington, DC. The videos are still on progress, but you can see them here on our vimeo page:

The following are some recent work. We’ve had a good mix of project types and rendering styles, including a variety of restaurant retail, residential, multi-family residential, and commercial.


Summer 2018

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.

2018 wave!

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.

Restaurant interior & apartment Fall 2017

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.
