year in review – 2021

Despite the pandemic, the pace of construction and design seems to continue unabated, thankfully one of the bright spots of the economy. As folks are using their homes much more, I have also found an increase in the number of inquiries for design services for renovations and new construction. My proportion of work between 3D renderings and permit drawings has noticeably shifted towards the latter compared to previous years.

Many of the projects that I prepare drawings for I also have the opportunity to prepare 3D models of the architecture to assist with making design decisions and to understand the 2D drawings. The following images are projects where I also prepared working drawings up to permit/ pricing sets for my clients.

Other work shown below are renderings for various clients: owners; builders; real estate agents; developers. I am pleased with the relationships I have developed and maintained over the years, and here’s to many more exciting projects in the new year.

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.
