I’m finding that more a-typical requests are coming my way these days. Not your usual architectural or residential projects… which is always a nice break from the norm! SIM Home Interiors Inc. had contacted me to produce an interior 3d rendering of their clients’ (Mercury Filmworks) new reception desk. They specifically requested a 3d digital look because their client (Mercury Filmworks) happens to be an animation studio. So no typical hand drawing, sketch or low quality 3d rendering will suffice!
Below shows the existing conditions / scope of work. Note all the junk that is visible behind the reception area confusing and even overwhelming clients giving a questionable first impression.
Rarely do clients provide detailed specifications or even sketches of their proposal, but SIM even provided 3d sketches. I forgot the name of the software package they used to produce the perspectives but they use it simulate millwork design and construction. I believe they just sketch on top of a print, scanned it and sent a few views over to myself. Below are a few sketch sample I had to work with. This made my creative workflow super easy because right away I knew what sort of “look” they were going for.
Pretty basic modeling for this project. Since AutoCAD dwg, Revit or Sketchup files were provided, I worked off the pdfs provided mostly a floor plan with minimal but useful dimensions. Minimal guessing, Sometimes drawings are in such poor conditions, you’ll have to re-draw everything anyways.
Architectural geometry rendering checks were produced using a simple ambient occlusion pass with and a single HDRI (High Dynamic Range Image) dome light. Camera settings and angles were adjusted at this phase.
Final Rendering and Post Production
The final renderings can be viewed at the top of this page.
Another successful project out the door!
